    Comments about The Jolly Postman:

    A classic book I remember from my younger days. I bought it for my son, who loved being able to follow the postman's journey as well as opening each of the envelopes to read the mail.

        Comments about The Jolly Postman:

        The use of the letters, cards and inserts engages with children from as young a 2 years old and introduces them to the whole new world of fairytales. My two-year old loves this book and insists on it being read every night.
