The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allen Ahlberg
The Jolly Postman is a cute story with fun, fanciful illustrations. The Postman goes about his day delivering letters to many familiar fairytale characters, such as Cinderella, B.B. Wolf, Jack and the 3 Little Bears. It's fun for older kids to see these characters interacting with each other and adults will enjoy some of the humor incorporated in the correspondence. The best part, of course, is that the actual letters and postcards are in the book. You can pull the letter out of envelopes, flip through magazines and examine both sides of each piece of mail. What could be more fun?
