About the Seller
Timberdoodle was founded in 1985 when Dan & Deb realized the educational materials they were finding for their young family would be just as helpful for other homeschooling families. We're now second-generation homeschoolers and four of the five "original Timberdoodlers" work for the company now. We love finding Crazy-Smart materials to make learning at home easy and enthralling.
