The Learning Corner


The learning corner

As parents and teachers, we are always looking for teaching moments when we have our kids engaged.  Explore important concepts such as stereotyping and misjudging of others, or just run wild with your child's imagination by speculating on how the blue ape came to be in the cage in the first place!


We didn't shy away from big words!  Let your kids be exposed to new vocabulary words—you'll be surprised at how much they'll retain!

The blue ape rap

One of Billy's secret talents is writing raps! Get into the cadence of this rap—really more for the adults than the children—by thinking in terms of Dr. Seuss and the Broadway musical sensation, Hamilton.  Just have fun and expose young ones to another literary genre that can spark additional creativity in storytelling.
