THE JOLLY POSTMAN or OTHER PEOPLE'S LETTERS
By Janet & Allan Ahlberg
Published by Penguin Books Ltd
I'm curious - who here DOES NOT own this book? I feel this one may be one that many of us own already.
Reasons we love this book:
1/ it's a timeless classic.
I remember when this book was released when I was in prep school! I was fascinated with it and now my kids love it as much as I did.
2/ The originality of the production and design of this book is incredible.
It must have cost a fortune to produce back in the day! With all the flaps, little fold outs, inclusions etc. lucky they sold millions of copies... it was worth every cent of the production costs.
3/ It is the perfect 3-4 year old birthday present!
Trust me - if you have a 3rd or 4th birthday coming up, grab them this book. They won't be disappointed and they'll keep it forever. My son requested this book last night and it never gets old. He's been interested in the postie lately as he's received a few letters and gifts in the mailbox.
This book highlights the fun the postal service (it's not all bills!) & can bring and a little bit of fairytale magic too!
