FOR ALL AGES!

Two Fables with the theme of forgiveness. The original moral stories that teach while entertaining - 'The Ant and The Grasshopper' and 'Three Billy Goats Gruff'.

Each fable is highly interactive, plus we learn the four seasons, the power of kindness, and how to forgive others.

Special thanks to The Jim Henson Foundation for supporting our online puppetry programming.
