It is a story about a little tapir called Timo who goes on a journey with his mother to look for animals who are a bit different - just like him.
Activity colouring page is also included.
Anak Rimba Books was created by Abyan and Farah in 2017 who both had a shared interest in promoting creative content that focuses on conservation awareness. Anak Rimba means ‘Children of the Forest’ in Bahasa.
Using creative storytelling, we give endangered animals and the environment a centre stage. We want to cultivate nature loving children and instill in them universal values such as kindness and respecting nature and animals.
Quite simply, we are two girls who grew up in a big city and want to teach the younger generation to appreciate nature and what we have now before it disappears. Through our stories, we hope that the next generation after us will grow up loving nature and help reduce further impact to our planet.
Reviews from around the World
"A great book for kids who don't look like their parents (for any reason, they could look more like one than the other, be ethnically mixed or adopted).
This book takes us from family to family where little tapir Timo can see that many babies look very different from their mothers/parents and that the most important is love and kindness and that eyes can't see that.
A pretty story which also includes endangered animals as heroes to broaden the views of readers on wildlife and nature protection"
