Here’s what educators are saying!
“I had a hard time learning the native trees here in NC when I moved from out west. When you struggle to learn a concept, it makes it harder to do and then the more frustrating it becomes. When you get frustrated….you do not learn! Once I got a look at the Leaf Critters I was hooked! The shapes, the colors, the fun character names…it all fused together and it just clicked in my brain for me!”

“I have used your Leaf Critters® with an elementary school after school environmental club (grades 4 and 5) in the Stone Mountain, GA area and the students were enthralled with your critters. It was a wonderful way to engage their imaginations and create an interest in both trees and their natural world. Thank you for inventing such an innovative program.”

“Tree identification was glossed over in my childhood education, and I always felt that I should be more knowledgeable on tree identification. I would have loved a resource like Leaf Critters® as a child.”
