Wow! What a surprise! I have received 20 lovely long letters from the students in Mrs. Mason's fourth grade class.

Mrs. Ark and her fourth grade class are the best! Several days ago I received an envelope with 21 letters about The Things With Wings, each one in a colorful envelope illustrated with scenes from the book.

I received a wonderful surprise in the mail this month. It was letters -- 18 letters from Ms. M's fifth grade class in Florida.

(Monkeys seem to be popular in Florida at the moment.)
I thank Ms. M and the other teachers over the years who have told me that they have found creative ways to use
