Kids LOVE our big Rolando Responsible book...the

latest book in our Goo Guys & Gals Graphic Reader

Different parts of the cartooning process are controlled by different sides of your brain.

Character has been proven more reliable at predicting success and achievement than IQ! We’re developing a series of 50 character values books and flash cards that you can use to spur conversation with your students and children. Simple, funny cartoons help children understand and act out positive character. Download our first pilot study of the materials above.


A curriculum pack will also be available to help teachers and parents steer conversation, initiate exercises that promote action around the character value, and integrate character into lesson plans.

Make a HUGE Goo character mural together! That’s right, an 8ft. x 8ft. mural of the character value you choose! Using acrylic paint on heavy paperboard, this assembly will create a life size visual reminder for students that reinforces positive character and your school slogan! Fun music, fun visuals and a whole school effort that can go on display for everyone to enjoy...a great way to get kids thinking about character and loving it!


One hour assembly. Students will

need to sit at tables.

Thinking graphically helps students see situations from multiple angles, and choose the best solution. Working together to create a collective graphic story gives them a new tool for problem solving and a great skill for personal expression. Half day or full day classes end with a completed graphic story students can be proud of.
