“We are so excited to bring Captain McFinn and Friends to life in this amazing, interactive on-the-go experience.  We are proud to partner with experts in the industry to help today’s youth learn about Bully Prevention and Environmental Consciousness through a medium they get excited about.” says Phyllis Cafaro, author and founder of the Captain McFinn and Friends series. “Incorporating our free apps and iBooks into our educational program has allowed Captain McFinn and Friends the opportunity to assist in the fight against bullying in schools, because school should be a place for learning, fun, and friendship.”
‘Dive into Bully Prevention’ is the underlying theme of the series, designed to promote kindness and friendship for children ages 4-8.  According to the National Association of Elementary School Principals, bullying has become a national epidemic with an estimated 18 million children in the U.S. being bullied each year; negative feelings from being bullied account for 3 million student absences each month. Educators agree it is critical that children learn about bullying, and the ways to combat it, at an early age in order to discourage this disturbing and unhealthy trend.
Captain McFinn and Friends was created by Phyllis Cafaro, with inspiration from her grandchildren. In 2006, she began her journey to teach important life lessons to children through fictional stories and music. Her goal is to initiate positive changes in children everywhere.
