Books about wildlife to inspire young minds

Braveling Saves a Snow Leopard
By Mabel Hewitt & Matt Henderdson. Illustrated by Jenny Wren

The Tingalings are five loveable characters from Jupiter – Braveling, Sparkling, Darling, Smartling and Bumbling – who promote kindness and climate change awareness through a series of stories written especially for younger readers.

Following on from the first book, Darling Saves a Koala Bear, which tackles the subject of forest fires, The Tingalings find themselves on a mountain adventure for the second book, Braveling Saves a Snow Leopard, as they take on another climate challenge.

The snow on the mountain is melting, which is not good news for the endangered snow leopards who live there. The Tingalings must find a way to stop the mountain from heating – and the snow leopards from losing their home – and Braveling has an idea!

This gentle tale about how making a few simple changes can make a huge difference to our environment is a brilliant way to engage little ones with climate issues – and the perfect opportunity to introduce them to the wonderful world of The Tingalings!

Printed on recycled paper, a donation from the sale of each book goes towards Mabel’s Fund which helps provide extra-curricular activities and fun outings for vulnerable children in the UK.
