Meet Gibby

& all her friends

Ever notice that cartoon animals are often wearing clothes?

Or they're living in zoos...

Or they're causing trouble breaking rules in people's homes and apartments.

Real wild animal don't wear pants.

They don't live in confined spaces....

And, even though every little ape certainly LOVES an adventure,

they're never breaking the house rules when they're free in the jungle!

But do you know what wild animals ARE doing?

They're curiously exploring the world,

solving problems and overcoming obstacles.

They're loving life playing harmoniously

with their friends and families.

And they're learning to be who they are meant to be

growing up in the jungle with courage and strength.

How do we know?

Well, you know we know gibbons.

In fact, we've spent A LOT of time in the jungle.

And after more than a decade of gibbon loving & jungle adventures you can bet Jackie's got a few stories to tell.

maybe it's time to start writing about what life is REALLY like in the jungle.

But not in a scientific 'this is this' and 'that is that' kind of way.

Introducing, dun-da-da-daaaaaa...

But....

  So we got to thinking:

.... In a way that's fun and real, enchanting and... JUST for kids.

(though we've got the science in there to back it up too).

Our new children's book series that introduces kids to the wonderful world of gibbons, using cartoon versions of REAL animals and nature to teach kids important lessons about curiosity, problem-solving, resilience, self-confidence, teamwork, empathy, and integrity - all while rocking and rhyming in the heart of the jungles of Asia.

And now a few words about the people who bring Gibby to life...

Jackie had already been studying gibbons for 7 years when she first met Josh in university. She had just returned from Thailand after living in the jungle with gibbons for 2 years, studying their hands and eating habits for her PhD.

 

Josh thought that was cool. He had just gotten back from Peru where he was planting a fruit tree orchard  for people in need. He loves animals and nature and wanted to help out at Prime Earth, so he joined the team.

 

Jackie could see Josh was a tough cookie. He was artistic and thoughtful, and an explorer like her. And maybe, just maybe, she thought, he might be able to join her in the jungle one day to spend time with wild gibbons, IF he was brave enough. So she invited him to Thailand.

Josh agreed.

And it was hard. A leech bit him on his first day.

It was gross. Jackie laughed. (He wasn't hurt, and sometimes laughter is the best medicine). But so began a friendship that sparked an idea to combine forces to help gibbons and teach kids compassion by connecting them with real animals in nature through fantastical storytelling.

After spending weeks in the jungle with Jackie and the gibbons, Josh got pretty good at drawing gibbons, and

Jackie has a knack for wordsmithing rhymes, so...

 

Gibby's Great Adventures was created and

Gibby the Gibbon was born!
