It Came In the Mail

It Came In the Mail

In this fun new picture book by Ben Clanton, Liam learns how fun it is to send and receive letters in the mail.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it's a great time to help your young children write notes and decorate cards for friends and loved ones. Preschoolers can even “write” notes themselves – and then have you help them address the envelopes and mail them.  Both activities help build important early literacy skills. You’ll be having fun and building your child's brain at the same time!


Looking for more ideas to build early literacy skills in your children?  Talk to your local children’s librarian, download the ACPL Family App, or visit one of our storytimes.    Write on!

    I like this service!  I mail things to my almost 3 yr old grand, since she gets to check the mail with her mom or dad.
