Summary
"A long, long time ago, before email and texting, the mail was delivered in a much slower way-it was called Snail Mail (because some thought it was delivered by a snail). Although it took much longer, everyone agreed that letters were a little more special when they were delivered by Snail Mail. They might be handwritten. They might include a drawing. They might even contain a surprise inside! One such letter was sent by a Girl to the Boy she loved, and it was up to four special snails to deliver her card across the country. The snails trek across the country-through desert heat and dangerous blizzards, across mountains and plains, through cities and forests-and along the way, they find that taking time to slow down and look around makes the journey all the more beautiful."--Amazon.com
Summary
Introduces today's digitally minded children to the traditional practice of sending letters by mail, describing how letters sent by "snail mail" are often handwritten and sometimes contain pictures or other surprises, in an engaging story that traces the path of a letter sent by a Girl to the Boy she loves.
