Once Upon A Time there was a mother named Masha Cheriakova. And Masha wanted to inspire her children to spend more time exploring nature. As she was a children's author, Masha decided to inspire her children by writing them letters from a girl named River, who would tell magical stories of her adventures in nature, carrying out missions and meeting wonderful characters along the way.
Then, River started to send the children their own Missions to do, so that they could help her protect all the trees, animals and insects out there in the natural world. And the kids loved it! In no time, other children and their parents were asking for letters from River and Secret Protectors Club was born!
Lots of parents have told us how River's letters and missions have inspired the entire family to spend more time in nature and that this has brought a calmness, creativity and self assurance into their children's (and their own) lives. What else could a parent wish for?
Now a whole bunch of magicians, fairies, witches and wizards who believe in the power of nature have joined Secret Protectors Club and together we are on a mission to connect all children to nature!
