Parents Teaching Their Kids

Reading is quality time TOGETHER

Reading is the perfect opportunity for parents and grandparents to bond with the children in their life. Time Machine Balloon Adventure Letters can be read together in person, or over long distances. If you live far away from your young reader, a letter subscription is a great way to stay connected by planning regular phone, FaceTime, or Zoom calls to read each letter together.

“Time Machine adventure letters have been great for my daughter. She actually looks forward to getting her letter in the mail because she can read it with very little help, and then we make the project together, which makes reading time so much better. Love these letters!”

— Tonia, grateful mom.

Give the gift of a

snail-mail experience

Remember the excitement of getting a fun letter in the mail with your name on it? Gift that same feeling to a young reader in your life with our adventure letters.

A delightful alternative for readers who may feel overwhelmed by chapter books. These letters strike a perfect balance of length and challenge, making them both enjoyable and educational. Each letter arriving in a vibrant orange envelope featuring a captivating hot air balloon, becomes a much-anticipated treasure, igniting your young reader's enthusiasm for the written word. Foster your child's love for reading with this wonderful experience!

I was really amused at how my daughter read these pages of what she would usually say was too much “small print,” and would refuse to read it in book form. But because of the form of these “letters” it tricked her into reading them. She is an excellent reader, but has ADHD, so too much reading can be overwhelming to her. This really caught her interest! Then, she did an activity that taught about maps and directions. Definitely recommend.
