Charlie Sunshine
“Look on the bright side!”
Charlie Sunshine, Milly and Silly are a team of friends who teach children how to solve problems by developing healthy socio-emotional skills. Charlie utilizes songs that incorporate diverse musical genres with fun and inspirational messages to engage children.
Stories Matter
“Who are we but the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, and believe?” Telling stories is one of the most powerful means that we have to influence, teach, and inspire. Stories help us learn about others and understand our place in the world. We are shaped by the stories we believe. Charlies helps children understand the stories they believe about themselves, and when necessary, rewrite those stories.
Optimism has a Face
Sunshine represents having a positive outlook. Positive thinking is a mental attitude that views situations in a constructive way. It does not mean ignoring negativity. Rather, a positive thinker recognizes a situation and looks at it with optimism. Through songs, books and other mediums, Charlie helps children develop healthy socio-emotional skills.

When Charlie tries sharing his hopes and dreams at school, most of his class dismissed him; but empowered by his parents to radiate hope, he eventually becomes a symbol of resilience for anyone who has ever felt discouraged. This inspirational story demonstrates not only that we can all be carriers of hope, but it also illustrates the impact believing things will get better has on those we encounter.
