Sometimes we reach out because we feel lonely, and sometimes we put others first because we care. Join these thoughtful characters as they discover that little changes can make a big impact. Help little Cloudette get her chance to be a hero, go tumbling around with energetic fox kits (Exercise), and celebrate when Papa Cloudy’s Restaurant changes its menu to help stop overfishing.  

BAM provides age recommendations as a resource for parents based on responses from our children’s focus group. We encourage you to use these recommendations in planning your family’s festival experience!
