Ten Thank-You Letters

by Daniel Kirk

Pig is busy writing a thank you note to his grandma when Rabbit rings the doorbell and wants to play.  Luckily, Rabbit decides he wants to write to his grandma, too, so they both sit down and get to work.  Pig writes and writes and tells Grandma everything about his recent experiences, but Rabbit keeps interrupting Pig for paper, stamps, and envelopes in between letters to the President, his teacher, the mailman, his favorite author, and many others! 
Pig is very patient with his friend until he realizes that Rabbit has taken the last of his supplies, and he doesn’t even have one stamp left to mail his letter to Grandma.  But Pig doesn’t need to worry! Rabbit surprises him with a special note that makes everything better!

Brimming with friendship, caring, and gratitude, TenThank-You Letters is a perfect read for the holiday season. Children will recognize the positive power of kind and thoughtful words and will want to write their own thank you notes after reading about Pig’s and Rabbit’s experiences.  If your child does not yet know how to write, have them tell you what or who they are thankful for, and write down what they say.  And don’t forget to send your thank you letter before all the stamps are gone!
