​​Our new children's book series, Gibby's Great Adventures,​ introduces kids to the wonderful world of gibbons using characters based on real animals and nature, to weave together empowering lessons about self-confidence, teamwork, understanding, and empathy into fun and entertaining stories and poems for kids!

PLUS (here's our favorite part!)

A portion of the proceeds from every book sold goes directly to Prime Earth's Gibbon Guardians program - working to improve global understanding of the

small apes through field research, education, and conservation.

  

After chasing a butterfly through the treetops, Gibby suddenly finds herself very far from home. Using her courage and working together with her new friends, Gibby learns she's able to overcome obstacles and find her way back to her parents in the Frilly-Fig Tree.
