The story and its lessons are supplemented with a discussion guide and useful tips to remind children and families that big changes start with small steps at home.

“I am a firm believer that knowledge is power, which is why I am proud to collaborate with Dawn on The Wonderful World of Blue to encourage children to become wildlife heroes,” said Hager. “By making wildlife education widely accessible, we aim to inspire small behavioral changes at home that help create a cleaner world for wildlife.”
