This book lists 2,000 addresses of celebrities, athletes, and entertainers. In addition to the addresses of TV, movie, sports, and game show stars, there are also addresses of organizations ranging from The Academy of Model Aeronautics to Young Concert Artists. There are business addresses to help kids write to everyone from Adidas to Wrigley. There are addresses for magazines, comic books, publishers, and museums. There are helping organizations like the ABA Center on Children and the Law and twenty pages of political listings. Levine sees his book as more than a collection of addresses; as a tool of pleasure and empowerment for a generation of children who often don't feel heard and seldom take the time to communicate their thoughts in a way that will get results. Teachers can encourage students to correspond with a celebrity or service organization of their choice. What a great way to link writing with developing a sense of community and citizenship. These encounters of the literary kind may result in students' assuming active roles as community volunteers. They might even venture to compile an address book of philanthropic organizations in their own community as a clearinghouse for other volunteers.
