"We received the parcel. This was a huge and wonderful surprise. I am so amazed.
It is wonderful, simply wonderful. I am thankful for the stories, and appreciate your thoughts on sending this.... enjoyed the art book. I love the title. It works for much of life." ~Ashley
See What You're LOOKING At!
"The need for what you're offering is growing stronger by the day, the schools are in crisis, seemingly everywhere. Ashley's been running the art program for our home school co-op... She says she uses the books extensively - in fact it's the primary, and in some cases, exclusive teaching material she uses.
Bless you guys for what you're doing." ~Justin
KIDS NEED US - For our Character Building Stories:
"The stories are very traditional yet fresh, original and unique.
I’m still thinking of the many lessons each contains." ~ Anastasia Kalivas
"...Thank you for the materials... I liked the one about the seed [Little Blossom] because it also ties into the science curriculum. I work with ESL students and the text has to be simple for me to use it with my kids." ~Julie Lupson, NY, K-5 Elementary school teacher and member of the character education committee
The Richest Kid in the Poor House
"It echoes every Parents' cry... the Story reminds me of the blessings that we all take for granted.
~ Barry Cook, Co-Director, Disney's MULAN
"... I like the honesty of The Richest Kid in the Poor House. The children in the story portrayed real qualities, and were guided and corrected in a real way.
The Night Princess
...The same with The Night Princess: the "lessons" in these books are something valuable to all of us.You seem to have a real handle on how to "entertain" children through books, yet there is a deeper message that speaks to them. I would just hope that you keep up your creative process and keep offering up quality books with good messages for our children."
~ Christine Barry, Librarian at Sun View Elementary
“Thank you for the excellent lesson you presented to my third grade students. They thoroughly enjoyed what they learned. It was thrilling to see my students getting excited about art, and using their creativity in their drawings. Learning about 3D shapes has been very helpful in math. Teaching them to show people's emotions through their eyes has helped them illustrate their writing more accurately. They also enjoyed watching the movies you created. They are reading the book-version of the movie The Night Princess. The books are constantly being checked out of my classroom library. You really succeeded in showing my students the possibilities and joys that art brings. Thanks again ..." ~Jennifer Carrillo, 3rd Grade Teacher, Rio Hondo School

Thank you so much for your free picture behavior charts! I am a LMHC and they have been so helpful.
"I am a Center Director and was searching the Web for some information to do a training on “Ditch the Switch” for Head Start Parents. I came across your Site and it was great! I was able to download some of the behavior charts and will share your link to Parents at the Training. Thanks" ~ Wanda Young
"I am a teacher in a head start program in Tuscaloosa, Al., children ages 3-5yrs. Most of these children have behavior issues and are being put on time out constantly but none of that seemed to work. I really want to make a difference in their lives. After listening to you speak on TV today, I decided to get to your website. I will love to use your material in my classroom to help these children. In fact, I believe most of the teachers can do great using the positive re-enforcement. Thanks for all you do. God bless you!" ~Mrs. Appiah-Opoku

When you donate today, we'll send YOU a sturdy PORTABLE BEHAVIOR CARD courtesy of GoMommyGO®
The Portable Behavior Card is for using out of the home - in the car, on your way, or where you want kids to remember how to behave! The Portable Behavior Card is used for positive reinforcement in combination with the home chart. Used by parents, social workers, Special Ed teachers, preschools and caregivers. They are great for sharing with parents or grandparents, to help instill manners in the young ones you know!
These positive behaviors are reinforced on the card:
POSITIVE BEHAVIORS 1- TALK- Don't Yell! (Say, ”I can’t understand what you say if you yell. Use your WORDS instead.”) 2- Say “Please” (be polite, don’t whine!) 3- Say “Thank You” (be grateful!) 4- STAY CLOSE (Don't get LOST) 5- Hold hands when needed
6- Keep your seat belt ON in the car
The other side of the card explains how to use it: "Remind kids what you expect of them before you leave the house... When you catch your child being good, let them know you notice! When you get home, place a BONUS good Mark on their BIG Behavior Chart you download free from GoMommyGO!®"
Made of sturdy plastic, the Portable credit card-sized Chart from GoMommyGO® is for using when you are out of the home - in the car, on your way, or at any location you need them to remember how to behave!
How do you USE it?
