"5 Letters from Larry the Labrador is a uniquely engaging educational gift.  Kids learn geography and social studies and get excited to read.  They're great for 6 to 10 year olds.  My kids love em!"
- Beth W., Elementary School Teacher, California
"When I told my 6 year old daughter there was mail for her, she enthusiastically smiled and wanted to read it right away.

We snuggled into the couch and I helped her read the Mount Rushmore letter. She thought Larry was super cute and followed the story in the letter intently. When we got to the end and she learned that we could go online for some more, she asked, ‘Can we go online now?'

We logged on using our Super-Secret-Password from the letter, clicked through the slide show and did all the beginner activities. After I showed her how to do the first one she did the rest on her own.

The next day while we were at breakfast she looked at the lump of grape jelly on her plate and said it looked like Mount Rushmore.

She can't wait to get her next letter from Larry to learn about his other adventures. I love it!"
- Annette R., Social Worker, New York
"My seven year old daughter was pumped up when she find out there was mail for her."
- Russ Lande, NFL Analyst, New Jersey

- Jessie, Age 8, New York
