Book Review: Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters by Janet Ahlberg - Reviewed by (15 May 2013)

Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters is a very clever book and a hit with young children.

The story follows the daily route of a postman delivering his mail. But the recipients are most unusual, such as Goldilocks, Cinderella and more. You also get to open their mail which makes it most interactive and fun and quite unique.

My only complaint that over time the letters may get a little fragile and tear or even lost, so take care around over eager little hands. This book is excellent value and nicely illustrated and will soon be read many times over.
