I love this review Jennifer Franklin gave of my book, Mr. Mailbox Man Goes to Work!


-----------------------------------------------


'Mr. Mailbox Man' is a gift for any child, from newborn to elementary-school age. The story is highly imaginative and relies on fantastically detailed pictures to convey the story, forming a bridge of understanding between our physical world and our imaginary nature. This story lends itself to rich vocabulary development by allowing the child to become the storyteller. 'Mr. Mailbox Man' is filled with charm and fun while feeding young reader's minds with adventure and fostering their budding creativity.

Jennifer has a masters in education. She teaches and paints magical things.


Back in 2003, we were in school together. She made these beautiful shadow box worlds when we had a show at Gallery 1010 together! I love them so much. Thank you, Jennifer, for years of advice, inspiration and friendship.

As you may know, Kelly is my partner in crime for Evie and Knox Stories. We have two published picture books together and are working on our third. I was eager to see what she thought of my upcoming book and so pleased to get her seal of approval. Read her review below:


---------------


"Mr. Mailbox Man is such a sweet and unique book. The story is simple and perfect for teaching children the skill of storytelling as the book is told completely through illustrations. Children grow their imaginations and vocabulary, and parents have a beautiful opportunity to talk with their kids about the book! Love Mr. Mailbox Main Goes to Work and it's talented illustrator!"
