Write a Letter to the Pigeon

I love this idea so much. So much!
Lexington Park Library has recently implemented a new learning center for kids that is centered around creating and delivering mail. When they visit the library, kids are encouraged to write letters to well-known characters from children’s books. After the letters are written, the writer hand-delivers the letters to the mailboxes that are mounted in different places around the department. There is even a letter carrier costume for kids to wear when they are delivering the letters.
Building literacy skills + writing to story book characters + playing letter carrier = nothing but WIN!
