Mac’s Adventures & Antics

 In Uncategorized

Back To School With Mac® is a tradition that helps kids (preschool – early elementary aged) get ready for the first day of school.  It’s especially helpful for kids that have school jitters/anxiety.

The book explains Mac’s purpose, and how he plans to help children prepare for their first day.  Mac plays with kids during the day and at night his “magic” comes alive.  He can leave school supply gifts in backpacks, play silly tricks, or leave encouraging notes.  It’s a great strategy to help kids prepare for school.  It shifts their focus from the ‘worries’ to the silly antics of their little apple friend.

For those just starting their tradition with Mac, we thought it would be helpful to give you an idea of what Mac has been up to with some of his other families.  Below are some daytime adventures and nighttime antics.  Have fun!
