THE WHISKERS

A preschool series about socio-emotional development that will feature real dogs as the characters. Each episode introduces a new word for a certain feeling— from familiar emotions such as anger, sadness, and kindness, to emotions that kids might have felt but don’t have a word for yet, such as shame, betrayal, and joy.

BIENVENUE!

Une série d’animation pour les enfants qui porte sur les aventures d’un groupe de jeunes amis animaux qui viennent d’un peu partout dans le monde et qui créent une nouvelle communauté basée sur la diversité, l’inclusion et la résilience – sous le Grand Arbre où habite Hibou qui garde un œil bienveillant sur les autres.
