​​"This curriculum doesn't just teach what bullying is, it creates an environment of advocacy and accountability. It empowers students to stand up for themselves and others."                                         A school counselor in Charleston, SC

"Thank you for Sal and Cal and the wonderful book about South Carolina. My granddaughter loves it! We have read the book a dozen times and she sleeps with the dolls and carries them everywhere with her."      (New Jersey)

​“My grandson LOVED Sal and Cal !! He would position them like they were in the book and we read it over and over (at least 8 times in two days). He liked to have the two of them cavort together and we performed all manner of puppet play with them, as well. You have a hit on your hands!”      (Virginia)
