Critters & Company is a powerful lyceum for both secondary and elementary schools.
Focusing on Violence Prevention and
character development Critters &
Company brings live animals and story telling as a medium to capture the minds and hearts
of America's youth. Critters & Company provides a forum for America's youth to
take a stand for what is decent and proper, challenging them to treat animals
and people with respect and courtesy.
Critters & Company has three current and one pending lyceum available
under the Violence Prevention and character
development theme. Each of the
lyceums use a different set of live animals and stories to illustrate the main
concepts. Each presentation stands independent of the others and yet
foreshadows or supports the material in the other presentations. Many of
our clients use each of the presentations on a yearly rotation.
Live Critters increase
focus and memory retention.
The use of live animals and story telling is an effective tool in reaching
students and staff. Whether for preventing violence
and building safe communities, or for developing a foundation for attitudes of
respect and courtesy, Critters & Company's presentations have made an impact
in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Northern Iowa Schools.

"Excellent! I was prepared to study for a test during this segment, but
my book immediately and never reopened it."

"...I appreciated how you used animals and people to compliment how we
teach the character values of respect and courtesy to our students. Your message was
gentle yet effective. Students in my room were genuinely moved by the program and
were able to explain its importance during our debriefing in the classroom."
