Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids will get great pleasure from reading these letters, and may even be inspired to write letters of their own.
Is It Any Good?
Though it's a little more didactic than some of the other books in the series, this entry is still enjoyable, mainly because of the author's inspired gimmick -- the letters. Kids will derive great pleasure from taking the letters out of the envelopes and reading them until they become tattered. And, even in this e-mail age, some children may be inspired to write letters of their own.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
