New Company Brings History To Life For Young Readers

Stories In The Mail LLC provides a low-cost and engaging way to supplement your child’s learning experience through first-person accounts by historical characters written in a letter mailed directly to your child.

Online PR News – 06-May-2013 – Minneapolis, MN – “It’s as simple as sending us an email,” according to Ellis LLeras, founder of Stories In The Mail LLC. “We just need to know what points you’re trying to teach and who you’d like the letter to be “from” and we can get our product mailed out within a few days.”

The product he’s referring to is called “Sensei” – named in tribute to his years spent living in Japan. For those who don’t know, “Sensei” is the Japanese word for “Teacher”. The cost to the buyer is minimal at only $5.00 per letter and can be sent out within a few days of confirming the needs of the purchaser. Anybody from teachers, to homeschoolers, to camp counselors can use this as a supplement to their curriculums. Parents can use it as well to keep the child’s mind engaged during summer breaks.

When asked how a letter makes learning any different than normal schoolwork, Ellis had this to say: “The thing about receiving a letter in the mail is that it’s a novelty. Kids find it unique and exciting. They can’t wait to open it and read what’s in it. Try getting that kind of excitement when you present your kid with a textbook. Parents know that when their kids ‘want’ to do something, they’re also a lot more likely to retain the memory. This can be especially important for children with learning or attention challenges.”

Notably, there’s more to “Sensei” and all their other products than meets the eye. Ellis prides himself on doing more than just writing letters. He creates experiences – experiences that are fun and educational for the reader. To do that he has provided an array of options that can be added to the standard order - from custom vocabulary lists to language learning exercises that can be implemented into the letter.

In addition, Ellis has stated that he wants to hear suggestions and ideas from teachers and parents. “We want to build relationships with parents and educators. Having a connection with the buyer helps us create the entertaining and educational experience we’re trying to achieve with the reader.”
