Have you heard about our first children’s book?
We are passionate about engaging children with animal welfare, and compassion towards animals. In the first phase of our education project roll-out, we have launched our first children’s book, where we introduce the 5 Welfare Wisps (Home, Food & Drink, Health, Company and Behaviour) and follow them as they step in to help an abandoned guinea pig, Tot.
Our aim with the Wisps fulfils a hugely important aspect of the work of the branch: the prevention of cruelty and the promotion of kindness towards animals through education. This is something we are very passionate about, and we are progressing towards something very exciting. For now, we just want to properly introduce you to these fab little Wisp characters and to demonstrate how we will be rolling out their presence in the future. Each Wisp represents one of the five animal welfare needs: Home, Company, Behaviour, Food & Drink, and Health.
These concepts are often not as simple as they sound, and can be fairly complex subjects, especially for younger minds and non-readers. So, our aim is to simplify these concepts through the use of story, symbols and image. To give you a better idea of what we mean, please download our example, aimed at kids, using Buddy the puppy as a guideline. Click here to download: Wisps-Buddy-Facts
