I read this today to the first to third grade kids in my stamp club. The ages are about six to ten years old. The kids enjoyed this book and it was an easy read. The pages are large and I was able to easily read this to a group of 8 kids without any moving around or complaints that the kids couldn't see well. The book covered the basic jobs of the mail carrier (of course) and a few extra little pointers about the mail service, in general, in the back. I could the simple 1-2 sentences a page made reading and asking questions from the kids easy. The pictures gave just as much info as the words did. For example, there was an image of the postal carrier delivering mail from the right side of the truck - "the mail carrier drives on the same side as the curb" This one sentence and photo sparked a 5 minute conversation about safety, why the mail company doesn't pay for two drivers, the increased cost of stamps for extra labor, etc. The photo of the mail carrier on the beack had the kids laughing and asking about mail carriers on islands in in Alaska.
I'm glad we picked this book up. The kids really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this for the PreK-3 group.
this book is so cool the pictures take up whole pages
my baby loves this book. we play with the melissa and doug mail box right after or during reading time. I adore this book and it brings the concept and sense of community workers and people working together.
you learn the different job of mailmen, their routes, what side the steering wheel is on and why and about safety around mail trucks.
it'a a good book especially if a parent or neighbor is a mailmen or anyone the child(s) know.
i hope you get to view the inside. the description and summary ON THE BOOK cover is very loose and gives it no justice.
Most small children love interesting cars and trucks, and mail trucks are definitely on that list. If your little one is looking to learn more about mail trucks and how the mail is delivered, "Delivering the Mail" is a great book. It has simple illustrations that draw kids in, and it is written using clear words and language that younger children will be able to understand.
I purchased this book for my granddaughter. She has been real interested in the mail system by wanted to always check the mail. She received another gift from a relative that is a Mailbox - outgoing and incoming. This book was a perfect complement. The illustrations are very nice and the story line quite cute. Package came in as stated when I ordered it and packaging was very good. I always worry about having soft cover books shipped to me (Im picky about bent covers) - but it was perfect. I would recommend this.
