"Us" Honored with Design Awards

We’re thrilled that Us: A Compendium has been recognized by Communication Arts and AIGA in their design competitions.
AIGA named Us one of the best-designed books and best-designed covers of 2021. It’s now part of the AIGA collection at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Columbia University’s Butler Library in New York.
Communication Arts also recognized Us for best book design, and is featuring it in their 63rd Design Annual. Congrats to our design partners, Office!

Change is here!

We’re incredibly excited to see this journal out in the world. We believe that unleashing the creativity of the next generation of brilliant young eco-activists is the path to addressing the biggest challenges of our time. 🌎

Change is about empowering kids to come up with their own plans to save the planet, starting with the choices they make every day. It’s filled with digestible facts, stickers, postcards, hands-on activities and creative prompts that encourage big and small actions — from avoiding vampire energy, to building a solar oven, to up-cycling trash, to advocating for policy changes, to creating their own zine. The journal inspires thinking, exploring and creating, while providing a place to capture ideas and plans.

Pick it up from your favorite bookseller.

"Change" is Coming

We believe that every kid can be an eco-activist.

Change encourages kids to unleash their creativity to protect our planet. Through sometimes-silly and sometimes-more-serious prompts and hands-on activities, it teaches them about climate change, shows them ways to care for the earth, and inspires them to take action. Ultimately, they'll come up with a plan to help save the planet, starting with the choices they make every day.

It’s available May 10. We hope you’ll check it out, and share it with all of the brilliant, budding eco-activists in your life. 

"Us" is here!

However you define family — whether it’s the people you live with, folks you’re related to, or friends who feel like family — coming together with people you care about to connect, share and celebrate is one of life’s awesome things. Us: A Compendium inspires these together-times, and we designed it to capture whatever's interesting, weird and wonderful about your family.

It’s full of prompts (both silly and serious) to help kids and their grown-ups learn more about each other. Activities, like designing your family crest, making a family board game and creating a time capsule, get everyone involved. We hope it helps you re-live special family memories, uncover new connections, and share lots of giggles.

Us is available from your favorite local bookseller, or Bookshop, Powell’s, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Puffs x Wee Society

Wee Society partnered with Puffs on some special back-to-school-boxes. What’s your favorite? Wee-mojis? Gesundheit!? Stacking shapes? Each pack encourages kids to transform empty boxes into something awesome — a piñata, puppet theater, monster feet. The collection is available at select retailers now.

This is Us

Exciting news: Our next (6th!) journal,
Us: A Compendium, will be available Nov 2. And this time, it’s focused on family — designed to capture whatever’s interesting, weird and wonderful about yours. We hope you’ll pick up a copy — you can pre-order it today.

"Be" Recognized for Best Design

We’re thrilled that Be: My Mindfulness Journal was recognized as one of the best-designed books fo 2020 in AIGA’s 50 Books/50 Covers competition. “In a year where many of us felt and were disconnected in numerous ways, books provided us that connection to each other and to our world,” said Bennie F. Johnson, AIGA’s Executive Director.
Be’s universal theme of finding calm through creativity became especially relevant during the pandemic — helping kids work through challenges and feel feelings without allowing them to take over. Be is Wee Society’s fifth kids’ journal published by Clarkson Potter, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

Be is here

Today’s the day! You can now get your hands on Be: My Mindfulness Journal  (and we really hope you do). Watch the trailer here.
We created Be long before the pandemic hit. We wanted help kids learn strategies to deal with everyday challenges — in a way that’s not-so-serious and leaves lots of room for creative expression. Now, as more and more kids (and adults) are dealing with record levels of anxiety and uncertainty, we’re more committed than ever to share this little journal far and wide. If you buy a copy, please consider supporting your local retailers — they need us, and we all need them.
