Avery and Masa Adopt a Red Panda!

Avery and Masa are so excited to announce they just adopted a red panda from the amazing Red Panda Network! 

There may be as little as 2500 red pandas left in the world and the Red Panda Network helps protect them and their habitat through education and empowerment of local communities.  They are protectors of the endangered animals just like Avery and Masa!

Avery and Masa had such a great time at summer camp in Pasadena, CA! The kids even asked them to come back!  Thanks to the teachers who shared our positive message with their students and joined the adventure.  We appreciate the love and are honored to return next year with our second book coming soon!
