The Colourful Garden Company Collaborate with Magic Cat Publishing for Launch of New Children’s Book

Spring is officially in the air and here at The Colourful Garden Company we have an extra spring in our step because we’ve teamed up with UK publisher, Magic Cat, to launch their latest book of poetry, ‘If You Go Down to the Woods Today...’ by Rachel Piercey.
The book is for young children, inviting them to experience the everyday wonder of nature. Each spread is dedicated to key events or rites of passage in a child's day, brought to life by Freya Hartas's superb illustrations of woodland friends.
You can join Bear on his journey from spring to winter with lots of friends to meet, places to explore and things to spot along the way.
If You Go Down to the Woods Today... is a delightful reminder of the goodness and simplicity we can find in nature and wildlife all around us. The exciting collaboration includes our personalised hampers, a sapling from The Woodland Trust and Magic Cat’s latest publication. Take a look…

We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Magic Cat and The Woodland Trust on this unique partnership. As a company we believe in Magic Cat’s mission to create beautiful children’s books that do more. They gently weave ideas that matter into stories that engage, entertain and bring joy. Ideas about kindness, togetherness, friendship, inclusivity. Ideas about the future of our planet, about culture, activism, and mindfulness. Their books inspire care for our world… and each other.

These values are very much aligned with our own so we’re on a mission to spread the messages of positivity and kindness wherever we go!
We hope you’ll join us.
