Last year I reported that Mister Lemur wrote a book, TRAIN OF THOUGHT, a whacky, wily learning adventure. Now I introduce Lemur Pup and THE SANTA CLAUS ALARM, a holiday escapade written in rhyming verse.
THE SANTA CLAUS ALARM is a production of Ringtail Learning San Francisco, founded by Hans and Jennifer Hartvickson. There website is a treat for kids, parents, grandparents and teachers. A portion of their profits are donated to charities supporting the protection of lemurs and/or lemur habitat.
P.S. Kudos to the creators of Mister Lemur. Their passion for children, education, science, philanthropy, wordplay and the Mister Lemur project shines. Mister Lemur's caretakers offer school visits (a Stanford, Wharton educated pair) and they provide a kid-friendly web page where children can ask Mister Lemur questions. Mister Lemur also offers writing contests, music, games, and a regular Mister Lemur newsletter. A portion of all proceeds is donated to wildlife.
