The Birth of Bear & Squirrel

It was in the middle of a 14 hour road trip, somewhere around the heart of Oregon, that my husband and I talked about my love of teaching our children and our shared love of storytelling.  Bear & Squirrel may have been born 10 years ago while we were dating, but they came to life in the car that day for both our children and yours.  It is our earnest prayer that your family will experience the same excitement, engagement, and growth from Bear & Squirrel that our family has.

I am married to my best friend and have 4 children: David (9), Evie (6), Daisy (3), and J.R. (5 Months). We live in beautiful Orange County, CA.
