We have partnered with the Bateman Foundation and Dash BC to bring fun activities to kids learning at home. Designed with positive messages of kindness and inclusion, the Home Activity Kit includes books and a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that focus on creativity and Social and Emotional Learning.

Heidi is a shy stick bug who is anxious to make new friends but no one sees her because she blends in with the branches and twigs. She learns to speak up for herself with some help from her teacher. Author/illustrator Aura Parker is from Sydney, Australia.
