My eight-year-old is a budding marine biologist, so of course, he was stoked to learn more about the octopus! I had no idea they have sharp beaks for breaking shells. Crazy! I seem to learn plenty with Kiwibop Postcard Pals every month, too.
The reverse side of each postcard is in postcard format but is filled with interesting facts about the topic. This seems to be written at a level that would be great for preschool and early grade school students to read with (or to) their parents.
There is also a website address for their online content. We took a peek and found that there is tons of information on their site about all kinds of fascinating topics!
We do have luna moths here in Georgia, but my son has never seen one. Now he’s on a mission to find one!
We learned all sorts of things about lovebirds this month! They are native to Africa, and they’re a type of parrot. I had no idea!
This card is all about the Seaglass Carousel in New York City. You ride in the belly of a fish and listen to the sounds of water, and at night it’s all lit up! It sounds amazing! My son and I definitely have this on our list for our next adventure in that area.
Verdict: We have been receiving Kiwibop Postcard Pals for a while now, and we really enjoy it! The postcards are beautiful and the topics are really interesting. This month was a little more animal heavy than usual, but they have a massive array of topics, both on the cards they send and in their online content. This subscription is also very inexpensive, and kids love getting mail, so I think it would make a wonderful gift subscription for a special child in your life.
