Dear Parents:

You'll build your child's future success when you bring home Huggly's Sleepover- a new kind of truly educational software based on the simple idea that children learn best when skill-building experiences are built right into the context of a learning game.

Ever since my father founder Scholastic in 1920, the Company has stood for connecting learning with the world- and that's why child development experts, educators, and authors at Scholastic have put age-appropriate challenges right into Huggly's preparation for the sleepover party. Your child will learn from the very fun of playing Huggly's Sleepover!

Beyond building academic and problem-solving skills, Huggly's Sleepover also encourages children to develop essential social and emotional capabilities like sharing, cooperation, empathy, confidence, perseverance, and motivation.

Your child will be charmed and engaged by the many activities and special moments in Huggly's Sleepover. You'll find that the experiences and skills in Huggly's Sleepover make this the most richly rewarding software anywhere- we guarantee it!
