About shipping
All items are shipped USPS first class or priority mail.

We’re happy to ship anywhere in the world, but the shopping cart here is for orders to US addresses only–including Alaska and Hawaii because they are, indeed, part of the US. (Got that, fellow sellers?) If you’d like an order shipped outside the US, please email, and we will calculate shipping just for you.

NT101 Read-It, Read-It.

4.25 x 5.5 pattern card

Half of our Tribute to Librarians. A chicken walks into a library and says, “book-book-book,” (say that as though you’re making a chicken sound), so the librarian gives the chicken a book. The chicken takes the book to a pond and sits next to a frog. The frog says, “Read-it, read-it.”

Yeah, we did them out of order.

NT103 Ambigrams.

4.25 x 5.5 pattern card

This chart contains two ambigram patterns that can be finished individually or back-to-back.

The first is an asymmetrical ambigram, which means that it spells one word right-side up and a different (but related!) word upside-down. This one spells “Story” one way and “Reads” the other.

The second pattern is a symmetrical ambigram, which means it spells the same word right-side-up and upside-down. Either way you look at it, this one spells “Read.”

NT104 Wild About Reading.

4.25 x 5.5 pattern card

How long did you think it would be before we brought wildlife into this series? The tiger-skin pattern and couched teeth encourage everyone to go wild and read.
