I started making play tents 2 years ago as a way for my kids to enjoy a space just for them. I wanted it to be used for their endless imagination as well as provide a reading nook for all of their reading adventures. As a mom, I also did not want to create an eye sore in my house to achieve all this, so that's why I have created beautiful play tents. It's a win-win situation for both moms and kids!
As a former teacher, I know the struggle is real with literacy. Too often I have experienced or heard stories of reading and kids not mixing well, but it does not have to stay that way. Kids just need their private space to practice and feel safe while they build their confidence with their comprehension. So now I am asking you to make a difference with us with this issue. We have been researching for a foundation we can partner with and think we've found the one: Reading is Fundamental. Their mission aligns with ours in that we want to provide books to children who do not have one. Our mission is simple: every time someone orders a teepee, we will donate a book to Reading is Fundamental foundation. Here is a short video on who they are and the difference you can make with us by partnering with them.
