Young readers will be entertained as Mrs. Cow receives her bell, Mrs. Pig receives a brush and soap, Mr. Mole receives glasses, Mrs. Hen receives a book of fairytales, Mrs. Sheep opens a brush, and Mrs. Mouse opens a piece of cheese. Then, Mr. Ben returns home to find a letter addressed to him. Young readers open the letter and find a thank you from all the animals for delivering the mail to them. Colorful illustrations, a heartwarming story, and pop-out packages make this book a natural choice to be read again and again. 2005, Gingham Dog Press/School Specialty Children's Publishing, Ages 3 to 5.
