Mister Lemur

Ringtail Learning exists to delight and educate young minds. We recognize that children have a litany of entertainment options and that books, stories, and songs must first delight to have the opportunity to educate. After engaging with Ringtail Learning content, a child has had fun… and learned something without realizing they were learning!

Co-founders Hans and Jen Hartvickson encountered Ring Tail Lemurs while traveling in the island nation of Madagascar in 2006.  The fun they had getting these curious and social ring-tailed animals started several years of reading and learning everything they could about lemurs. This curiosity expanded into learning about the history, climate and people of Madagascar. Because the context was enjoyable, this learning was enjoyable as well.

We endeavor to provide content that will spark young people’s curiosity and motivate them to learn just as Ring Tailed Lemurs motivated Hans and Jen to learn!
