Hmmm 3.5 stars? It went over pretty well with my pre-kinderpgarten/kindergarten class, but it just really lacks engaging details to carry it through, and the contents of the box at the end are frankly a letdown. Way too cyclical. If it contained something more interesting, and clues to the contents were dispersed throughout, this would be a way more engaging read. Fortunately, I had a fun activity for the end of it, which made it feel like a not entirely pointless story time exercise. Even so, j ...more

A package is sent on a journey to someone's birthday party. It's a book focusing on moving verbs, transportation, and days of the week with mail as the main theme. The text is very simple and few. It worked very well with the little ones at storytime, but it would not hold the attention of older children. The illustrations are very unique - pictures of 3-D paintings.

Voice two: Wrap it. Tape it.

Short and sweet story about the steps in which different transportation is used to send a package. Cute pictures I believe made from foam, that gave the book a nice touch. A good story to read for a first time post office visit, or even when your child wants to send a package to a friend. Simple, yet a good education read, possibly to a child that takes interest in cars, trucks, planes, etc...

Very interesting illustrations made from foam board, drywall compound, and acrylic paint. Very, very short story of a package being sent on different vehicles before it arrives at the birthday boy's house. Perfect for story time on the post office.

Cute picture book on a topic that kids like, includes trains, planes, trucks ships. Good boy book. Might be a better third book than a second in PS ST
