CritterKin is a children’s media property designed to teach kids that animals (critters) are family (kin). Though the concept is straightforward, the implications of what can be achieved when children understand that concept are powerful. We believe:
- Good relationships with pets teach kids empathy, understanding and respect, and help them grow up to be caring, compassionate adults.
- Stories can educate and get kids and their families excited about and involved in rescuing, adopting and caring for animals in their communities.
- Stories about animals are a good way to introduce and explore important topics such as aging, physical differences, bullying, prejudice, and animal cruelty such as puppy mills.
CritterKin currently consists of three illustrated e-books published by Harper Collins.
The second, “Meet the Mutts,” hit the shelves at the end of October. It introduces all 8 members of the CritterKin pack and their slightly offbeat leader Ms. Jenaia.
The third, “Lead With Your Heart,” was just published on March 11, 2014 and follows the adventures of a misunderstood pit bull named Lance who must deal with prejudice, bullying and being a little different to find his forever home.
