We have a set my mom purchased in the late 80′s/early 90s, which I still adore.

I read your comment to the kids and it made the whole family really happy. Hearing about iewers setting up their own study spaces in response to our little video is just the best response ever. Thank you!

His study space includes a globe, an abacus, and his beloved composition book. After he was done, my daughter sat down with the abacus and discovered all of the ways that you can add numbers to equal 10. She woke up this morning to do it again…all because Evan set up that special study space! Great work, Blair crew!

Olive is such a natural in front of the camera.

And yes, I agree that the illustrations made it that much more charming.

I am totally inspired to try making videos. Do you think you could give us some tips on making our own videos?
