In 1981, Elena Kucharik gave us Care Bears. They started as greeting card characters and grew into the aesthetic we have today:
a roly-poly collection of lovable little Bears with a very special mission: each of the Care Bears captures and expresses a human emotion. In the complex world of human communication and emotional expression, the Care Bears help people share their feelings with other people.
So, today, in honor of my preschoolers & that we teachers dressed up as Care Bears this Halloween, we’re going to see what we can learn from each Care Bear.
