Schools in North East Scotland will receive a free of charge copy of a new book of stories from Scotland’s native woodlands by Alan Crawford. Funding to develop and publish Whispering Woods came from the Grampian Conservancy of Forestry Commission Scotland:
These beautifully illustrated stories evolved through a fortuitous,
accidental meeting between the author and a teacher searching for
original stories to read to children in the forest – stories that
would both capture their imagination and enhance their
understanding of, and respect for, the woodland environment.
They will bring much pleasure to all who love the natural world.
The book will be sold in various outlets by the author for £13 but he has given permission to offer it to schools, teachers and outdoor educators for a donation of at least £6 plus p&p of £1.50. For more information and details of how to obtain a copy, please contact Katy Leitch firstname.lastname@example.org.
