What kids are saying! (Link to Gallery of Images)

What teachers are saying: 

"We truly enjoyed having Brave Little Company and their performance of Bravo, Chico Canta! Bravo! come to Scarborough Elementary. From the moment the children were invited through the mouse door, you captured their curiosity and excitement. The performance was totally engaging and interactive. The students enjoyed the music and humor. Congratulations on your bilingual adaptation of a wonderful story....We look forward to further partnerships with your company."

"Frankenshop was funny and engaging and the students loved it. The program inspired students to use their imagination for creative writing, developing story ideas, pretend play, and utilizing recycled materials to create. This will be helpful for writing and making the Texas requirements for story writing at school."
