"Success in school and beyond certainly means that all children need to learn to read critically, speak effectively, think mathematically and problem solve creatively. But it also means that children need to know how to work well with others and how to respond to the challenging situations they will meet every day. The WonderGrove Kids provide models for children to use as they learn to navigate their home, school and community worlds with confidence and with skill," said Maryann Marrapodi, HITN's Chief Operating Officer.

The WonderGrove animations are unique teaching and parenting tool that empowers creative and critical thinking. The series is created by WonderGrove Studios co-founder Terry Thoren, who was the former CEO of the Rugrats Company.

"Animation knows no borders and animated characters are the world's most popular ambassadors for learning. Our goal is to teach critical thinking skills to children in a way that is entertaining and memorable. Because the animations are in both English and Spanish we also give young children a fun opportunity to explore a second-language" said WonderGrove Studios Founder Terry Thoren.
