Watch your child bring stories to life.
The Connect Collection is a series of unique stories and workbooks that connects readers K-12 to the power of emotional awareness and physical fitness.
It starts with a blank page...
This may surprise you: there aren’t actually any pictures in our picture books – at least not initially. Your little artist is the one who changes that!
Each book is an exciting life lesson that children can bring to life with their own life experiences.
All books build on one another to create a thoughtful and complete collection.
We’re not the only ones seeing the benefits of the lesson-driven collection. The NYC Department of Education has partnered with us.
Our mission is to connect children to powerful concepts of emotional and physical fitness.
then it becomes a work of art.
Illustrating each page allows for children to grasp a rich understanding of the story and its message. There are no rules or instructions here. We want your child to bring the story to life with their personal imagination. Because no two artists are the same, no two Connect Collections will be the same, making your child’s completed set a precious and unique keepsake.

A bold new program in schools
Through a pioneering program called NaliniKIDS, the Connect Collection is being used in schools across New York City to teach students in grades K–12.
NaliniKIDS is an in-school wellness program that teaches emotional literacy and physical fitness in unison through an academic curriculum. The innovative and proven program is in partnership with the STEM Initiative, the NYC Department of Education and is currently the focus of a research study by Columbia University Teacher’s College.
