Something delightful is happening at CritterKin. Our goofy pack of mixed breed mutts, led by their intrepid if slightly offbeat person Ms. Jenaia, is inspiring teachers, students, parents and community organizations to work collaboratively to create projects centered around kindness. The initial catalyst for these projects is the CritterKin series of books, but the kids and their supporters are cheerfully taking the creative baton and running with it.

The result is learning that is at once engaging, entertaining and relevant – giving children the opportunity to learn and practice core intellectual skills (reading, writing, math, etc.) while acquiring the emotional intelligence needed to become respectful compassionate and responsible adults.
