Meet Casey!

Casey is a 4th-Grade student who loves playing make-believe, reading comics, and being a good friend. But like a lot of kids his age, he feels nervous when it comes to making new friends and being in new social situations. 

Casey seeks out the wisdom of his parents, friends, and other adult helpers to get him through his most difficult moments. During his adventures, he also learns to use his own wisdom to come up with his own solutions and help his friends.

from coloring books to an animated series,

Casey has journeyed through it all!

2018

...then were brought to life in
frame-by-frame slideshow presentations...

2019 - present day

...and finally became animated coloring book characters, starring in short movies called Casey's Adventures!

You might be wondering why Casey and the people in his life are all
black-and-white line drawings, as if waiting to be colored in!

When Casey's stories began as audio recordings, we quickly discovered the power of coloring books to keep our students' excited hands busy and their minds focused on these important lessons. We worked diligently to create our very own Casey's coloring book pages to accompany the lessons in our student workbooks. Now that the students could visualize the stories they were listening to, they became more and more invested in Casey's experiences. They began to see Casey and his friends as real people, referring to Casey's challenges and solutions with their grown-ups at home.

From then on, we decided to preserve the magic that happened when we gave our students their own autonomy: the potential to imagine their individual experience on the page and screen to help them learn, just like how they chose which colors filled in Casey's hair, clothes, and skin. 

With this in mind, we developed a 30-Video Animated Series so kids could watch the beloved characters interact with their environments. Each character remained as black-and-white line drawings to create an "animated coloring book," so kids could continue to reimagine their own identities and experiences up on screen.
