Each book has a magical section that allows caregivers to go beyond and tackle hard subjects like bulling, manners, being different than others, single-parent families, respecting authority, and working with others. Matching puppets, stretched canvas wall art, and removable wall decals bring the stories to life and deepen each child’s understanding of respect, determination, resilience, compassion, cooperation, and acceptance.
