“We could not be more excited about this collaboration,” says Helen Rockey, chief executive officer, See Kai Run. “See Kai Run shares many of the same values and aspirations found in Eric Carle’s stories, such as health and wellness, family, love of nature, and exploration of the world around us.”
“We are so happy to be partnering with See Kai Run on this adorable collection,” says Jackie DeMaio, licensing director, The Joester Loria Group. “The collection offers a fun take on the colors, characters and bold patterns of Eric Carle and inspires the next generation of explorers to connect with nature. “
