Sydney-Based Author Writes Children's Book about Social Distancing
Wilbert the Wombat Social Distances Teaches Kindness and Healthy Habits During Challenging Times
What's unique and special about this series is that the stories parallel challenging events happening in our world today. "I wanted to find a way to explain to children the hardships we're all facing today while teaching empathy, sharing hope and building community along the way," shared Jamie.
Writer and holistic health advocate Jamie Brooke originally set out to write the book as a unique birthday gift for her niece and nephew, but was later approached to publish the book as part of a series that includes Wilbert the Wombat Saves the Day.
Now with the two books published in the USA, UK and Australia, Jamie is excited to share these messages of hope and community mindset with a larger audience.
Saves the Day and Social Distances are available on Amazon and at wilbertthewombat.com. 10% of proceeds go to WIRES Wildlife Rescue, a nonprofit organisation dedicated to rescuing and caring for Australian wildlife.

About the author, Jamie Brooke: Jamie Brooke is a storyteller, yogi, and animal lover, who believes in doing what you love and exploring what sparks your curiosity.

Now as an expert storyteller, Jamie teaches the power of story through her writings and teachings. She has a Psychology degree and is a certified yoga teacher, using her education to dive into the science and art of storytelling through visual, oral and written content.
