Discount offer of the month
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Comfort Critter® is a cuddly plush monkey with a super-hero cape and a special heart-shaped pocket that holds caring messages, secrets, and feelings. The accompanying children’s book series, Monk Monk & Me, and Monk Monk & My Big, Brave Heart, beautifully illustrates how Comfort Critter promotes healthy emotional awareness for children experiencing challenge, change, or trauma. Monk Monk (the first Comfort Critter) becomes a partner in the child’s healing, inviting the child to openly discuss difficult topics and to allow feelings to surface and be experienced. Parents and clinicians are finding Comfort Critter to be an invaluable friend in the lives of children they care about.

Receive 15% off your entire order when you enter code “Liana2017” at checkout. This offer is valid through April 30, 2017. Check out all of Comfort Critter’s products on our website: http://comfortcritter.org
