In this week’s storytime, we discovered the things that arrive by mail and the power of letters–the alphabet kind and ones that arrive in envelopes.
Herman’s Letter by Tom Percival: Herman the bear and Henry the raccoon are best friends. But Henry’s moving far, far away. So what do they do? Promise to write each other all the time and stay best friends forever, that’s what. But being pen pals is easier said than done, especially when your best friend seems to be having way more fun than you are.
It Came in the Mail by Ben Clanton: After Liam writes to his mailbox, asking for more mail, he gets his wish, but soon he realizes that sending mail is even more fun than receiving it.
Dear Yeti by James Kwan: Told through a series of notes, two boys go on a hike hoping to find Yeti but run into trouble along the way.
