Check out our latest publication for kids: Silly Panda Earns His Detective Badge! Read the back summary below:

We developed this story to help your child learn that being different, expressing distinctive goals or values, is acceptable. Each child is special and learning to be true to one’s self and dreams in life is not always easy.

Silly Panda faces problems experienced by children during the school years. Teasing or joking, laughing, or making fun of a person may cause a sense of humiliation. Often, physical attributes such as weight or appearance spark teasing.

Panda Bear confronts these problems in school. As the only Panda Bear, he has a goal to be a detective. The children tease him and nickname him Silly Panda as he experiments with different disguises to learn the detective business and follows his dream.
