Developing social and emotional skills is essential to effectively managing the emotional effects of the unprecedented uncertainty, stress, and big emotions that everyone is experiencing in today’s world.
What customers are saying:
Connection Zoo® fits right into a homeschooling curriculum as a social/emotional subject. The Connection Zoo Feeling Chart is AWESOME! I like that this one starts with the six basic feelings and then digs a little deeper and gives practical ideas for next steps. Brilliant!
Nikkie Milner, Homeschool Educator and Mom
We will cross promote Connection Zoo®. Such great resources! I hope others realize how useful they are. We find them especially useful for some of our more difficult family situations actually. When looking to help a parent attune to their child in family situations where that has been difficult, these tools are very helpful.
Mathew Myers, Marriage and Family Therapist at Traverse Counseling & Consulting
As an educator and the parent of a special needs son, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Connection Zoo®! I was amazed how much dialogue the cards brought about with my kids in class. They opened up about their feelings and experiences, and it created a very relaxed discussion atmosphere. After each use, I felt closer to and more bonded with my students.

Homeschool Parent and Influencer, Chelsea Day of Someday I’ll Learn, talks about how her family uses Connection Zoo® in her EPIC How to Homeschool Guide. She says:
Beyond establishing a community, I think that it is absolutely crucial to discuss emotions and mental wellbeing with kids. We like to flip through Connection Zoo cards over dinner. They feature zoo animals and their characteristics and strengths. Your kids can have concrete examples of adaptable animals so that in stressful situations, they can remember to “find a trusted team member” like zebras do, or “take a hissing breath” like a milk snake to calm themselves. They can even gamify it, with zookeeper badges and rewards and stickers galore!
“Connection Zoo® is a wonderful screen-free resource.”
