With customizable K-6th programs available, which can include our Kids-to-Kids presentation, Kids-to-the World presentation, and our What it Takes to Write a Book presentation. All of our programs include extensive interaction with our buddies Seymour & Hau and the book series.

Kids-to-Kids, Kids-to-the World is an activities-based program that connects your students to what kids in other countries are doing. Seymour & Hau get involved with the show, too, of course! This programs are book-specific and highlights the book chosen by the school. We are currently offering programs for Seymour & Hau; MOROCCO, IRELAND, or ITALY books, or a combination of all three.

What it Takes to Write a Book is a fun-filled real life account of the steps we took to grow Seymour & Hau from an idea into a book series. Email us at if you have any questions.
