CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Kalpavriksh’s first book for children was published in 2008. The Ghost of the Mountain, a story about conserving the Snow Leopard, is based on a real incident and was developed for the kids of Ladakh. Similarly, most of our early children’s publications were created as part of locale specific education programs. The books Khari Journeys through Kachchh and Shero to the Rescue are about the wildlife and ecosystems of the remote and diverse region of Kachchh. They were first published in Gujarati to support the educational interventions being run in Kachchh by local NGOs. Circle of Life, about the life cycle of a bee, was developed for the children of honey harvesters in Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary, where Kalpavriksh has been engaged in conservation and livelihood activities since a couple of decades.

With these beginnings, we then forayed into publishing other books on the themes of nature, wildlife, conservation, communities and more…
