Yannick Bisson, star of The Adventures of Napkin Man


The Adventures of Napkin Man

Yannick Bisson (of Murdoch Mysteries fame) stars as preschool teacher Mister Anthony, who draws a superhero named Napkin Man for his students (always drawn on a napkin, naturally). When his students come up against difficult feelings, Napkin Man comes to life in an animated world and helps them understand and manage their emotions.

The Adventures of Napkin Man helps children get in touch with their strong negative feelings. It gives them fun and effective strategies to calm down in the moment and then problem-solve ways to handle emotionally charged situations in the future. It also helps children recognize emotions in others and develop empathy, which plays a key role in their future social interactions and relationships.
