Go Wild on our new Discovery Hub
April 6, 2016

Go Wild background DISC HUB

Get closer to nature and wildlife by visiting our new Go Wild Discovery Hub. It’s an online world full of inspiration for day trips to farms, exploring the countryside, learning about the importance of agriculture and the way our food gets from “Farm to Fork”.

The Hub ties in with our three Young Explorer: Forest School Touch to See books for blind and partially sighted children aged 11 – 14 years. On the Farm takes you on a visit to a large mixed farm in the UK to hear about how farmers grow their crops and rear animals in each season. Nature Detectives  is an exciting guide to exploring four different habitats – ancient woodland, seashore, hedgerow and rivers/streams – and the animals and plants which flourish in them. The beautiful tactile images are shown below. The third book is all about bushcraft and gives masses of practical hints and tips on how to enjoy your own “back to nature” camping experience.

The Go Wild Discovery Hub is designed to be used alongside these three, soon-to-be-published, books. The dynamic online content contains extension information, stimulating activities, music playlists, audio and video clips, interviews, recipes and much more. It’s all there to extend the enjoyment of using our tactile images and audio descriptions. So what are you waiting for – browse it now and release your “wild” side!
