When I saw the IMA Hero bears, I thought
they were cute. When I saw my 4 year old
son playing with the bears, I realized how
much he can learn from them. He takes what
he learns at home with his Galileo and Columbus
bears and connects it with what he learns
in school about the earth, moon, and sun.
