Pen Pal Bio:
Dr. Benjamin Bloom, or Dr. B for short, is an animal lover! In this series of letters, Dr. B will write to your child about his adventures helping animals, from the time a dog swallowed a toy to examining horse teeth (did you know they grow continuously?!) to helping a former circus tiger adjust to her new home at the zoo. Towards the end of the subscription, Dr. B will facilitate goodbyes by sharing that he is headed to Thailand to pursue his lifelong dream - - to work with rescue elephants on a sanctuary.
- Personalized letters from Dr. B will arrive every 7-10 days (varies with US Postal Service delivery times).
- Your child receives 12 letters in total, each with a self-addressed, stamped return letter to write back.
- The subscription lasts approximately 3 months. Prepaid subscription is $65.85 ($21.95 x 3 months).
- Subscriptions cannot be extended past 3 months with the same character. (But you can sign up for a new pen pal character!)
- Content for Dr. B and Dr. Kat (both veterinarians) is nearly identical. We do not recommended signing up with Dr. Ben if your child has already corresponded with Dr. Kat.
