I found a really cute book at the library today. DS loved it. It's called Dear Peter Rabbit by Alma Flor Ada. The entire book is letters from nursery rhyme characters to each other: Invitations to house warming parties (from the first little pig to PR), letters of apology (from Goldilocks to Baby Bear), informational letters (from Red Riding Hood's wolf to the three little pigs wolf). Oh, and Goldilocks last name is McGregor! All of the letters tie in by the end of the book.

Great intro to the proper form of a letter and a fun activity idea. I think DS will enjoy writing a letter to Baby Bear or Jack's giant.

Oh, my son will love that! Thanks for sharing. We are going to spend some time with Fairy Tales this year, so I will have to look into this book. My son LOVES to "write" people letters (he dictates to me, his personal secretary).
