The Little Mail Man of Bayberry Lane

 On a recent day, Hamlin and I decided to play "The Little Mailman of Bayberry Lane."
 
 This has been one of our most favorite "old books" since my children were small.
Needless to say, Hamlin loves it as well. 
 The Little Mailman of Bayberry Lane is a jolly little fellow.
"Now who do we have letters for today?" he asks.
He loves to put letters in the mailboxes of all his neighbors.
He knows they wait anxiously for his appearance in the lane.

Today, Mr. Turtle receives the tulip catalog he had waited for for so long.
 The Little Mailman takes a rest. 
It makes him happy to put lovely letters and parcels in his neighbor's mailboxes.

 Mrs. Goose is out picking bayberries for the bayberry candles she is going to be making.
Mrs. Duck is hoping for a letter from her sister. 
Will it come today?



 Mrs. Pig is waiting at her mailbox.  She never receives any letters, but every morning she hopes for one.

"I wonder why Mrs. Pig never receives any letters.  Maybe it's because she never writes any!"

Of course, I can't tell you what happens after that because you have to read the story for yourself!
But you probably have already guessed that Mrs. Pig does eventually get a letter placed in her mailbox!

 Another good day's work done by the Little Mailman of Bayberry Lane!

For the Little MailMan - Marmee must surprise you one day and send something for you to find in your mailbox! No promises - but one day you might just find it there! You are too cute!
