"A little reading is all the therapy a person needs sometimes."
With over 50 buddies to choose from. We allow students to build their own fur-ever friends, similar to the popular "Build-A-Bear" experiences. Our bear buddies, are unique, one of a kind and sure to keep kids smiling the entire time. Students are able to build their bear, name their bear, and take home an adoption certificate for their new fur-ever friend.
We offer workshops for schools and community stakeholders. Our topics range from tutoring to social and emotional support. We can host on-site or virtual workshops for schools and community organizations. Our workshops are typically one hour interactive experiences that leave all of our attendees with materials, skills and resources that can be taken back and applied immediately.
Everyone has a story, and so do our forever friends. Our books are written with our bears and their stories in mind. These stories promote positive self-care. Through the lens of the well-researched CASEL model, our books focus on self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.
We are happy to launch our virtual programming. Our virtual programming allows us to launch fur-ever friend virtual parties, mascot read-alouds, and so much more. We look forward to working with schools and nonprofit organizations.
Enrichment and Intervention
Our self-care books can be used for enrichment and intervention. This resource can support RTI and SEL instruction. Our books follow Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs framework as many of our books address various pillars.
Social Skill Sessions
We have therapists and team members on staff for school and community events to support small group and whole class programming. Schools and organizations will be able to engage in our monthly social skill sessions that are hosted by licensed therapists.
