Pichard, Alexandra Pen Pals. PICTURE BOOK. Aladdin (Simon), 2017. $18.
Oscar, an ant, and Bill, an octopus are having a great time exchanging letters and tokens in their pen pal exchange. When Oscar’s teacher breaks her legs in an accident, cancelling the pen pal meet and greet, Bill comes up with a very clever way for the pair to meet.
For teachers dedicated to a pen pal writing experience, buy this book! It’s a fun little example of how such an exchange can be fun for both involved.
