About the Author-Illustrator
PandaParents’ mission is to Bridge the early learning gap and inspire the superhero in a young child with MESSYLearning.
Education is a crucial part of children’s lives but to kids these days it includes being glued to screens or using stepping stone curriculums. They learn only one subject at a time through videos, digital games, or flash cards. Then they pass tests and move on to the next level.
These stepping stone learning experiences miss the mark of foundational brain development.
To fully unleash her potentials, a young child needs a better learning experience in order to build vast neural brain connections before she turns 5.
Trained as a neuroscientist, Yuhua Shang created a new learning program called MESSYLearning. It minimizes rote memorization and screen dependent learning.
MESSYLearning stories, such as “A Jolly Jingling Journey”, blends in various subjects while focusing on building brain network with creative designs.
A young child learns letters, words, plays finding hidden subject games, and even solves math problems during story time.
We hope our novel approach helps in engaging young children while nourishing the “roots” of their brains so they can flourish in adulthood and reap the “fruits” of this early brain building course.
Bridge the early learning gap; inspire the superhero in your child with MESSYLearning!
