New Children's Book Series And App Teaches Morals

Updated: Thursday, May 29 2014, 08:29 AM CDT

A group of geeks and creative minds have joined forces to create a new children's book series and companion app.

Award winning children's book series Maurice's Valises teaches kids lessons of kindness and empathy through stories and games. Created by children's book author J.S. Friedman, Maurice the mouse travels the world with his valise, or suitcase, gathering wisdom from some of the most influential minds in history like Buddha, Einstein and Christ.

The book is now being brought to life through Maurice's Sycamore Tree App. Children will be able to play games, win coins and use those coins to donate the book series to organizations that serve children in need, such as the Ronald McDonald House.

The nonprofit charitable project is being funded by private donations worldwide.

Maurice's Sycamore Tree App will be available in your app store on July 1st.
