Give The Gift Of Literacy This Holiday Season

Give The Gift  Of Literacy This Holiday Season

You know the joy you feel when you come home to a surprise in your mailbox? A letter from an old friend, an invitation to a special event, or that Amazon package you ordered yesterday! Imagine your grandkids feeling the same when they find their first special delivery from Paco Parrot personally addressed to them. Paco’s postcards are colorful, and the content is perfect for preschool and early elementary-aged kids.

literacyPaco is from Postcard Pal, a weekly postcard subscription that includes an introductory book and a postcard a week for however long you decide to subscribe!  You can even add on a plushie or a postcard making kit to help the postcards come to life. Each week of the subscription, a new postcard arrives from Paco. Subscribers also receive a weekly interactive blog with videos and activities to help kids experience more of Paco’s adventures.

Make Reading Fun!

In addition to encouraging reading in a fun and engaging way, Postcard Pal delivers life lessons and global awareness to your mailbox. Each postcard includes a relatable theme that reads in a conversational way as if a friend wrote it. Don’t be surprised if Paco’s experiences spark conversations around the weekly topics.


“You can even add on a plushie or a postcard making kit to help the postcards come to life!”

Circling sight words on the postcards and discovering new vocabulary words has become a favorite for many of Paco’s Pals.  As educators and parents, Postcard Pal knows the importance of early exposure to literacy. There’s no better way to get a jump start at school than by making reading fun.
