Love our books?

They're not just for reading!

You can use them to teach.

Our Story Stretchers are a fun way to expand the enjoyment of reading our books with your children or grandchildren; spending time together; and exploring educational and learning experiences related to each book. Our activities can be modified to use with other children's books.

Our Story Stretchers are aligned with the advice of Neil DeGrasse Tyson (noted astrophysicist) about how children learn:                                                      "Adults need to understand and value the inquisitive nature of children."

Watch and Learn:

"Teaching Thru Curiosity and Imagination" 

Our Story Stretchers help children learn HOW to think by focusing on the process of the hands-on activity and thought-provoking questions rather than the end result or product.
