Thanks so much for visiting our website and learning about Sunny the Mail Snail. Sunny was created many years ago while I was homeschooling my kids. My youngest wasn't interested in books and was a struggling reader. It was such a chore to get him to read. I not only wanted him to read, but I wanted him to LOVE reading! As a child, I grew up with my nose in a book. I learned about the world and traveled everywhere through books. So, dismayed but determined, I created "Sunny the Mail Snail" and sent my son a weekly letter. He felt so important getting his own mail every week. He would run to the mailbox and read and re-read Sunny's letters. Through these letters he learned about the world, animals, and insects. Eventually, he caught on that Sunny was in the same realm as the tooth fairy and Santa Claus, as they all do. But by then he had cultivated an interest in reading and a curiosity for learning that couldn’t be undermined by knowing the truth.
Recently, I pulled out those letters, dusted them off, and polished them up so I could share them with kids around the world. I imagine parents reading the letters with their children and discussing the questions and facts on a deeper level. I hope the letters provoke questions, giggles, and pique curiosity. It is my intent to promote imagination while creating a love for animals and travel.
It makes my heart happy to know that kids are loving Sunny around the world. Feel free to reach out anytime through Sunny's email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your visit here and enjoy!
