Different by DesignWhy are our stories slower, kinder, and gentler than most children’s media?
We want to create a slower, kinder, more gentle world. We believe the best way to do that is to create stories that share models for:
- How to be kind to others
- How to be respectful in thought, word, and deed
- How to live in wonder and reverence for this truly incredible world
And whether your child is turning three or going on 12 years old, all of our stories reinforce these values.
Let the stories inspire some creative fun!All the Projects to Go Along!
