She came home from preschool (after a field trip to the post office) and told me all about a book where someone tries to mail an elephant! YES! I had to find this book-- do you all know my elephant love?
So I checked the library, no luck. But, I was not above getting my child to ask if she (I mean I-- no I mean WE) could borrow it from school.
My kiddo was right, it's a great book! And if you want to make a whole theme of it, here are a few ideas…
Take a note from Cuteness' preschool teacher: field trip to the post office and go behind the counter. (In the back you might just get to see the stamp on your very own mail get canceled!)
Thank your own mail carrier like we did here.
Take up stamp collecting (matching, comparing, etc.) like Robyn and Snoopy have done.
Also some other fun mail centered books…
Happy reading and happy mailing!!
