NEW! “Recently I ordered the ‘Kelly Bear Teaches About Secret Touching’ and ‘Kelly Bear Teaches About Personal Safety’ DVDs. My students (K-4) loved them.

"I have been teaching children at Fort Lewis for eleven years and my best tools are the Kelly Bear materials. The children love to hug the Kelly Bear puppet and sing with the Kelly Bear CD of songs. I use the materials to help the children learn social interaction skills, to accept individual differences, and to learn about choices and consequences."
