Passion for literature starts with preschool Zoo-phonics®!

“Oh my GOSH! I recently opened a home daycare and found your website from hours of browsing for the right curriculum. I was sorting through your products list and I kid you not… flashed all the way back to my own preschool years!!! I remember my preschool teacher with a huge flip chart of these animals, reading stories and just being captivated by it all. I remember not wanting to get in trouble because then we’d miss the flip chart story. Of all the things one experiences in preschool … I don’t remember my classroom, my play area outside, the food, the friends… none of that. But I remember these animals! Perhaps that is why I’ve had a passion for literature my whole life and in 5th grade was assessed and scored a college reading level comprehension. I’m just shocked at the realization that this was the same exact stuff I had in my own preschool as a child and thought it would be cool to let you know that this stuff goes pretty deep into the brain! You guys totally “get it”… and I can’t wait to share these wonderful animal friends and stories with my own preschool classroom! THANK YOU! ”
