Sometimes it’s easier to promote good behavior by using a figure from “outside” the classroom as opposed to trying to explain to children why their actions are not favorable. ‘The Adventures of Rusty the Greyhound’ are a collection of stories and activities based around everyday classroom events – storytime, the playground, sharing toys, etc – so that children find his lovable character relatable.

Rusty is here to teach your students some important lessons in being a good friend, communicator, and listener.
