In Wildling Magazine Volume 7, Vicki Wood writes an essay on the power of words… how the expression of a child's imagination can form their future life and how we, as parents and grandparents, can play our part in that. Today we are celebrating Vicki’s incredible work as a children’s author and head of the creative brand Uncle Bearskin Productions. Her children’s books tell magical tales of beautiful creatures and strengthen a child’s understanding of and relationship with the natural world.
The Sippy & Sunny series features a young girl and her friendship with a dragon who breathes out golden butterflies instead of fire. Who takes her on flights around the world to discover the wonders of our habitat.
Meanwhile The Viking Boy is a story of Captain Finn, a young boy who can speak to whales and charters the seas to accompany his friends as the navigate the oceans.
Their ABC book is simply the most beautiful collection we have seen with incredible illustrations by Cat Lee and a departure from the usual words that we see time and time again in alphabet books. The titles from Uncle Bearskin are timeless heirlooms that are worthy of staying in a family through the generations. The perfect gift at this time of year!
