Inspiring kids of all abilities to be healthier, smarter, and kinder
Who is Kody?
Kody’s Kids is named after the organization’s official Ambassador, Kody O’Bear, a 6-foot animated and talking teddy bear who inspires kids to learn and be the best they can be. Kody O’Bear has been referred to as a role model, mentor, reading ambassador, and by one young student, “My reading hero.”
As part of our Early Reading and Learning Outreach Program, Kody and his team visit and inspire children of preschool, kindergarten, and elementary age from all backgrounds and abilities to learn the importance of reading, healthy habits, and kindness to others. Healthy habits include the importance of proper nutrition, physical activity, oral hygiene, and sun safety.
