RHS and Scholastic to launch Activity Books for Children
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced the first titles in a new range of entertaining, informative and beautifully illustrated activity books for children in partnership with RHS Licensee Scholastic, the world’s largest publisher and distributor of children’s books.
Aimed at ages 6-10 years, the first titles launch in February 2021. My Dinosaur Garden and My Unicorn Garden will inspire children to explore gardens and the outdoors with crafts, activities, gardening tips and nature facts. In March, the Outdoor Adventure Handbook will look at discovering plants, wildlife and getting closer to nature with activities for all weathers.
In May, to complement the new range, My Unicorn Garden Cards and Notelets will be launched. This is a creative make-and-do set with stickers that children can use to create unique messages to share with friends and family. Further books will follow in autumn 2021 and beyond.
The books will be available from bookshops, RHS shops, all good garden centres, through major online retailers and at shop.rhs.org.uk. Their publication will be marked with a collaborative marketing campaign to reach the extensive family and school audiences of both Scholastic and the RHS.
These are the first RHS-licensed publications from Scholastic following the announcement of a major RHS partnership with the respected children’s book publisher in August 2019. The partnership encompasses a wide range of children’s publications, including sticker and activity books, handbooks, illustrated non-fiction, board and colouring books, annuals, e-books and journals.
