Parent/Child Course (10-12 yrs), $185 - No Prerequisite

The child and parent take this course together.  This is a reading and discussion course.  Animal themed literature is so fun and meaningful, and we can so often relate to the charming and poignant stories of our furry or feathered friends. A delightful reading list will engage the child with quality writing and will form an interesting foundation for taking discussion deeper than mere comprehension.

We recommend that parents review these books ahead of time to ensure they are a good fit for their children. Not all courses may be well-suited for each family, particularly when children are in a younger age range. We rely on parent discretion to determine whether or not a course will serve their child well.
