SHORT the Squirrel

Mission: To spread literacy-rich, community-oriented, enjoyable content to our youngest citizens. SHORT the Squirrel is a non-profit founded in 2020 and was created after McRae Young, a Mobile County Assistant District Attorney, saw young children spending large unoccupied blocks of time in the courtroom. Her mother Monica Anderson Young and Dr. Dee Dupree Bennett created SHORT the Squirrel as a mechanism to fill the gap with “edutainment” and are establishing SHORT as literacy’s identifiable, lovable mascot for children. The first SHORT activity booklet, SHORT In Court, will be released in all 67 Alabama county court systems in early 2021.
