    I know this is meant for lower elementary, but we decided to utilize parts of it for our 8th graders. They have been working on writing letters and proper format, so we added this twist. Each student picked a color and had to write a letter of their own, similar to the book. They absolutely loved it. It was a huge hit, and great for following a long week of testing.
