Greetings, nature lovers and defenders of the imagination!
We are excited to present Wild Book, the book that will take children and young people on an exciting journey into the wild.
Wild Book is a book of 10 very original proposals for playing in nature, to inspire children of all ages to explore, learn and love nature. It is designed with loose pages for free use on any terrain, held together by an attractive carabiner and printed on recycled ecological paper.
Created to awaken our love for nature.
Following the principles of nature connection, and through fun and very original proposals, Wild Book makes us experience Nature and feel that we are part of it. From making works of art with elements of nature to experiments with ice and mud, the 10 proposals that the book gives away will bring children closer than ever to their natural world.
If knowing makes us love and loving makes us care, then, now more than ever, more nature, friends!
Health and well-being, freedom, connection with nature, imagination and creativity, understanding the world and sensory development are common benefits in all proposals. Within each proposal, specific benefits described on each page are also displayed.
A Wild Book for each season of the year.
With this campaign you will help us to print Wild Book Winter. But our adventure doesn't end here! Wild Book Winter is the first book of Wild Book The Collection. In December we will deliver Wild Book Winter and in 2024 three more copies will go on sale: Wild Book Spring (March 2024), Wild Book Summer (June 2024) and Wild Book Autumn (September 2024). If you are already sure that this collection is for you, take advantage and reserve your collection in advance at a very special price available only during this campaign (WILD BOOK THE COLLECTION reward)
Each Wild Book includes original proposals for each season, as well as an ecological paper with waste according to the season, and a carabiner of a different color for each season.
Trilingual - Catalan, Spanish and English.
The Wild Book helps us practice languages, since its texts can be read in 3 languages, thus achieving a more inclusive book and, of course, much more fun!
Wild Book Winter includes proposals such as:
The Forest in Winter. Sit near a large tree in the forest and build a mini replica of the tree with small sticks and natural elements.
Winter birds. Complete the feathers of different colors and sizes, they can be invented or inspired by feathers you find when you go out for a walk.
...and many more...
Its loose pages can be inserted and removed, and arranged as you like. Designed to be used freely and outdoors, let your creativity run wild!! Wild Book has been designed with the intention of offering practicality and fun to the little ones, while being interesting and useful for all ages.
Made with passion & sustainability.
Wild Book is made with a very unique eco-paper chosen especially for each season of the year. For the Winter edition, we have chosen a paper made from citrus waste obtained from landfills. Produced with renewable energy, FSC™ certified, recyclable and biodegradable! If you want to know more about this distinctive and tactile paper, go to the Favini website.
Designed to take outdoors wherever we go, that's why it is held by a Nordisk Hook that offers us all the freedom. This aluminum hook is a must-have carabiner for wilderness adventures. Made from ultra-strong aluminum and equipped with an easy-close feature, it can be used to hang accessories, group smaller items or hang your Wild Book on your backpack.
Why do we need your help?
We are looking for passionate adventurers and nature stewards to make this project a reality. Your financial support will allow us to print 300 copies of the Wild Book - Winter, organize unforgettable launch events and bring the magic of nature to children around the world.

Wild Book is designed by the Wild Me, a cooperative located in the rural area of Barcelona created by a team of people passionate about nature and childhood. Wild Me was founded by Gloudina Greenacre when she returned to Catalonia after ten years living in the Amazon jungle. There she lived with Amazonian communities, and discovered that children, without much more than their environment, their community and a lot of nature and freedom, were happy, healthy, intelligent and resilient. Working with children in Catalonia, she decided that it was more than necessary to reconnect childhood with nature, and give them that solid foundation so that they could develop healthily. Wild Me works to promote spending time in nature, working with both schools and families.
Designed by the Wild Me creative team: Anna Prats (designer, teacher, creative, mother and organic naturalist), Marta Ribes (photographer, anthropologist in process and lover of life and authenticity) and Gloudina Greenacre (wild mother, educator and crazy about creating disruptive things) Printed by Erika and Àlex in La Kabana, an unconventional design and printing studio that works giving life to authentic projects with soul.
A little more about us...
Gloudina Greenacre is an invincible advocate of connecting with nature and spends her days trying to find ways to get children and not so children out to play and learn from nature.
Anna Prats, organic and natural designer and creative, believes in the strength of small changes made with a lot of love and dedication.
Marta Ribes is a photographer by profession and restless by nature. Through her camera she captures the essence of life naturally and without embellishment. Additionally, she is immersed in her training as an anthropologist and collaborates with several notable projects focused on non-formal education and nature preservation.
Àlex, a mechanical engineer and Erika a designer, give life to La Kabana, which was born with their desire to experiment with design with almost obsolete processes. Maintaining the most analog, traditional and romantic part...
