Actor, author and activist Kirk Cameron is emphasizing the importance of storytelling to children and how it impacts their minds and shapes culture. 

"The culture shapers are often the storytellers, the creatives and the songwriters," Cameron said on the Just the News, No Noise TV show. "Kids are learning more from their phones coming out of Instagram or TikTok than they are learning out of their schools. So why not lean into the areas that shape culture that fill the hearts and minds of children?"

Cameron announced Monday that he has teamed up with the publisher Brave Books to launch a television program titled "Adventures with Iggy and Mr. Kirk."

"Too much of children’s television content today is mind-numbing, cringy, or full of just downright harmful messages," the description reads. "This is why children need Adventures with Iggy and Mr. Kirk to exist, it is a groundbreaking live-action children’s TV show that will not only entertain your children but also build their character at the same time."

Cameron explained the show is being crowdfunded and not relying on Hollywood.  

"Kids get to learn these stories in ways where they're having fun and in ways where parents can trust," he said. "So I'm really excited about it. I'm excited about the way that we're making it."

He added that people can contribute at Watchbrave.com.

Cameron said that the concept of the show is an iguana named Iggy who goes on adventures with kids and teaches them lessons on topics such as the First Amendment and the dangers of socialism. 

"He's got a supercomputer that teleports us as the viewers into Freedom Island where we get to read all of these great stories about the sanctity of life, about the fruit of the Spirit, about the first and second amendments, about the dangers of socialism and critical race theory," he said.

He said that a lot of people are waking up to the fact that liberty is endangered and people need to step up before it's too late. 

"God's put something in our heart called a conscience that starts to sound off," Kirk stated. "Everyone's smoke detectors are going off right now, knowing that liberty is going up in flames, and we've got to do something."
