A subscription includes 24 beautiful folktale letters mailed across 12 months' time. Each letter includes 2 physical pages, covered front-and-back in colorful story content. Most letters include a folktale-themed postcard tucked inside to encourage writing and sending your own snail mail as well. :)
Once you purchase a subscription, a list of Question Prompts will be made immediately available to you in the form of a PDF that can be downloaded or printed. These question prompts correspond with each folktale letter, and are meant to spark conversation with a young reader you gift, so that you may "keep up" with their story journey, even if you aren't reading the letters. They'll also help you to explore your young reader's thoughts and discuss deeper themes in the text such as friendship, courage, truth and more. All are able to be navigated at the age appropriate level of your young reader.
