************* Other reviews:
I love this book! When I taught 3and 4 grade (Special Ed) I would use this book with my students. WE would write letters to find out what people ate for breakfast. One year we wrote grandparents, another year they wrote to teachers at our school. One time students wrote to our Mayor, School Supertiendent, Govenor, State Assembly people, and US Senators, Congress person. It was a great activity because we learned how to write a letter and we practiced handwriting. For the most people wrote back and the students loved getting answers. Imagine getting a letter from the governor! ---from Karen Kimball on Goodreads
