Dooley Bear Ventures, LLC is pleased to announce that Dooley Bear!, Dooley Bear Adventures – Belize!, Dooley Bear Adventures – Uganda!, Dooley Bear Adventures – Ontario!, Dooley Bear Adventures – Arizona! have all been honored with Academics’ Choice Smart Book Awards, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind and provide potential for the student to fully develop higher order thinking skills.

The Dooley Bear book series is a winner of the Academics’ Choice Smart Book Award in the book category. The Academics’ Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the Board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category, subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory. The full list of winners is posted online at

The hundreds of submitted products that are not chosen by the Academics’ Choice Awards team (and many that are chosen) are donated to a variety of worthy charities and other organizations across the globe.
