Letter writing encourages a love of reading, writing, creating and touches upon imagination and the arts.

If your young scholar wants to get into writing (and an adult is not making them do this), then my Pen Pals With A Children’s Book Author form is for them. It’s great for children 6–12, educators, classrooms, and libraries.
