Oh no! The mailman has fallen into the birdbath! With bold, bright two-page spread illustrations, the cast of characters of this cumulative story (a la This is the House That Jack Built) burst forth to reveal just how they helped to get him there. It took a bit of "help" from everyone from the bee that stung the moose to the flock of crows building their nests with the buttons and bows from the scarecrow. There are smiles on every face as everyone works to set things back to right! And oh, by the way, what was in that package the mailman was delivering anyway? It's a rhyming romp of a tale that's perfect for story time! Great read aloud to ages four to seven. 40 pages
