For the Child

Every piece of the Tessy & Tab program is designed to increase motivation, promote letter-to-sound decoding and provide your child with ways to see themselves as successful readers.

The first thing you will share with your child is their bright green Welcome Postcard. The excitement begins when you tell your child that Tessy and Tab have sent a postcard to tell them they are in the club! You will read the postcard together to learn who their new friends are and that they will get a new book every day!

One at a time, you deliver 60 Tessy & Tab Booksto your child, creating a reading ritual with stories and activities designed for early reading. Every book is based on a real world experience that your child will recognize. Each 16-page book is perfectly sized for little hands. Our unique stories and activities provide play-based learning.

The bright blue Delivery Envelope is soft, durable woven nylon with a bright yellow plush lining. Whether you choose to deliver the book with the daily mail, or set up a bedtime book delivery, your child's anticipation of their special envelope sets the tone for fun with books.

After the book is read, your

child gives you back

the envelope so

Tessy and Tab can send

a new book tomorrow.

The very big Collection Poster shows all 60 books to come, with Stickers to say "I Read It!" Wow. That will be your child's reaction when they unfold this poster and you hang it on a wall or door (we include little removable

adhesive squares!).

Your child will study the 60 books

in their future and you will learn

their favorites.


The bright orange zippered Travel Tote is just what your child needs to take a few books anywhere. Like all the Tessy & Tab components, this tote has a name badge

area so when they take

their books to school,

in the car or to the doctor's

office, they are easy to carry

and hard to lose.

We've created an Extras section where you can find printable activities and games…
along with videos that connect with certain stories and photos with ideas from other families about how to have fun with Tessy and Tab.
