The most common response we hear when showing Koala Pete™ postcard stories to someone for the first time is: “I wish I had one of those.”
Koala Pete™ has chosen topics he hopes will touch your loved one’s heart. From the first postcard story to the final “Book Bonding” day, the Koala Pete™ adventure is a special, one-of-a-kind experience. You will be given opportunity to reflect on important life events and decisions you’ve made. Now you have the opportunity to share insights and lessons learned with loved ones in a keepsake album to be treasured for years to come.
Though it may only take a few minutes to write each postcard story, it has taken an entire lifetime for you to be able to respond as only you can.
Tell Your Story Your Way
Match the Writing Prompt to the postcard. Write your story and send to loved one. Ask them to save the cards so they can be bound into a keepsake album later.
If you are concerned about the cards getting misplaced or forgotten on Book Bonding/Binding Day, make a copy of the original card and send that instead. Save the originals in the box provided.
Send photos and memorabilia with the postcard stories if desired. (Extra postage may be required.) Or save them in the box and add to your album on “Book Bonding/Binding” day. Use as many 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” cards as needed.

Book Bonding/Binding Day Tips & Tricks:
- Extra photos can be cut into ¼” strips and inserted in binding to keep album flat.
- Take a picture of a picture with your phone. Works great!
- Consider adding memorabilia, awards, newspaper clippings, stickers, and/or fabrics.
Admire a job well done with your loved one. Good time for a cup of hot chocolate or lemonade and a cookie.
Repeat for another special person in your life.
