Whole Wild World resource pack

This month, Children’s Books Ireland and the Laureate na nÓg Patricia Forde embark on the Whole Wild World adventure down the Wild Atlantic Way and we want YOU to come along too!

Dare to daydream with some of Ireland’s favourite artists?

In this resource pack we have activity videos from a host of brilliant authors and illustrators to help you unlock your imagination. From making your own map with Alan Nolan to creating a new mythical creature with Ashwin Chacko, these videos are perfect to use with children at home or in school to cultivate creativity.

whole wild world

Our aim is to bring the Whole Wild World into your hands, no matter where you are. So whether you’re a parent or guardian unable to make a stop at a location on the Whole Wild World route or a teacher wanting to recreate the magic of our April school visit, we encourage you to get daydreaming and doodling!

For use in the classroom or at home, all you need is some paper, crayons, markers or pencils (artists' choice!), and don’t forget your imagination!
