Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Four short chapters present basic information about mail carriers. Mail carriers deliver mail to homes and offices. A young girl is shown writing a letter to a friend. She puts the letter in an envelope and writes the friend's address. After putting a stamp on the envelope she places her letter in a mailbox. A mail carrier collects it along with others and takes them to the post office. The mail is sorted by machine and sent to smaller post offices for delivery. Packages are also sorted. A local mail carrier loads his mail into a mailbag and starts his route. He delivers mail on one side of the street and then the other. He delivers packages, letters, magazines, and cards. Colorful photographs depict mail carriers and children from a variety of cultural backgrounds. A "Be a Community Helper!" page presents suggestions for sending letters. Four "Words You Know" include pictures and labels. Includes an index and a website to consult for more information. A good introduction to mail carriers for young children. Part of the "Rookie Read-About Community" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
