In our modern world of cellular phone calls, text messaging, and electronic mail, letter writing has become a lost art. The winning combination of a good story line and entertaining letter-writing is a surefire way to generate interest in long-distance communication via the U.S. Postal Service. Once students have captivated recipients with their mastery of friendly letter composition, they can use Letter Generator's business letter tutorial, presented in the same user-friendly format, to obtain information about one of the many places Kate visited, or that they would like to visit. In style characteristic of Gibbons' numerous informational books, she provides a detailed summary of a letter's journey from mailbox to delivery, using straightforward text and bright, basic illustrations. The mailing process is made understandable as readers see letters weighed, sorted, transported, culled, canceled, coded, binned, boxed, and sorted once again before reaching their final destination.
