Each package includes two sets of the stories: One for our friends ages 4-6 and one for our friends ages 7-9. The five animal stories are about respecting cultural differences, resolving conflict, and dealing with bullying situations. The stories are beautifully illustrated and are accompanied by 15 large posters. Teachers may choose to read the stories from the books provided or from the backside of the posters.

The package also includes a teacher's manual containing conflict resolution, anti-bullying exercises, and black-line math and literacy exercises coordinated with each story. The Teacher's Manual includes the stories (for ages 7, 8 and 9) Class Lessons, and Class Activities. The Class Lessons help the children better understand the message of each story. The Class Activities extend the children's learning by offering academic and creative responses to each story. Choose the activities appropriate for your class.
