When is the last time you heard a parent say, "Go out and play." With a wink to childhood and a mission to reconnect children and families with nature, the Let's Go Chipper!TM series excites all back into the great outdoors. The nature inspired stories are eco-educational and correlated to national academic standards in arts and literature, science, and social skills.
Nature Deficit Disorder, Juvenile Diabetes, ADHD and other disorders that affect children both physically and mentally have an association to a sedentary life spent in front of computers and TV. Chipper encourages children to explore and play which helps promote physical activity and conscientiousness. Respect, good character and environmental stewardship are the underlying message in each story delivered through music, mishap, and humor.
A Great PartnerChipper and his friends are brought to life by a wonderful team of writers, illustrators and animators but the award winning live footage and guidance of Bay Area naturalist, Doug McConnell, delivers the magical settings kids are eager to explore.
Doug's received many regional Emmys and other broadcast awards during his long career in television. He's also been recognized for his extensive public service and been named Honorary National Park Ranger, Honorary State Park Ranger, Volunteer of the Year by the San Francisco Bay Trail and Humanitarian of the Year by the Marin Humane Society.
