Mission and Vision

Welcome to Astro the Monster – Kids in Leadership, a children’s book series and curriculum that focuses on social and emotional learning, STEM education, and leadership for kids. Our mission is to help children develop the skills and mindset they need to succeed in school and in life, while also having fun and feeling empowered.


Founder’s Story

Drawing from his personal journey of overcoming discrimination, abuse, and social isolation during childhood, Claude Jones developed the Kids in Leadership program. Recognizing the transformative power of storytelling, Claude emphasized the importance of teaching children not only academic skills but also essential social and emotional skills like empathy, resilience, and self-awareness. To achieve this goal, he created the Astro the Monster book series and educator’s curriculum, which provide engaging stories and activities for children aged 4 to 8. Through these resources, children can learn important character traits such as acceptance, friendship, teamwork, and responsibility, integrating them into their everyday lives.”

About the Books

Astro the Monster is set in the fictional world of Flurkal, where Astro and his friends learn important life lessons through their adventures. Each book in the series focuses on a different topic, such as kindness, teamwork, curiosity, or problem-solving. The books are designed to be engaging, relatable, and fun for young readers, while also incorporating important social and emotional learning concepts.

In addition to the book series, we offer a comprehensive curriculum for educators and parents that includes social and emotional learning activities, STEM lessons, and leadership development. Our curriculum is based on the latest research and best practices in education, and is designed to be adaptable and flexible to different learning environments.
