It’s wonderful when others accept us as we are, but even better when we accept ourselves. Help a talented boy get a strict teacher to change her teaching style, and party with Little Pig and her friends when they discover how their differences make them special.

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!
