The Jolly Postman: Book Talk Tuesday

Hey all! I’m linking up with Mrs. Jump’s Class for Book Talk Tuesday!

I’m so excited to share one of my favorite books with you!

Not only was this literally my favorite book as a kid, but one of my favorites to read to my class after teaching fairy tales and folk tales.


This book is about a postman who is delivering letters to some of our favorite folk and fairy tale characters including Baby Bear, the Big Bad Wolf, the Wicked Witch, and even Cinderella!

(The FAI sticker is part of my library organization system. {Click here} to read about that.)

Let’s take a look inside.


I love the fun rhyming format of this book, but that’s not the best part…


This book includes actual letters that you can pull out and read! HOW fun is that! The oohhs and ahhhs from my students always give me chills. They love, love, love it!


The letters are cute, funny, and even witty! Every page turn is a new adventure, and elicits a lot of discussion.


The letter for Cinderella even includes a mini-story book of Cinderella. It’s actually pretty long, so I normally read a page or two, but not the whole thing.


The book starts with an invitation for Baby Beat to attend Goldilocks’ birthday party (complete with apology from Goldilocks) and ends at her party complete with birthday card!


If you’re looking for a great book to end your fairy tale or folk tale unit, or just want a book to show how FUN reading can be, this is your book!

There’s also a Christmas version which is equally as adorable and fun.

I hope you enjoyed hearing about one of my favorite books!
