book for writing letters

I use many of the ones listed, but one I haven't seen mentioned yet is Thank you Santa. I really like it because it starts with a girl who actually takes the time to write Santa a thank you letter. He writes back and it goes on all year. She lives in Australia and I really like the idea of children being exposed to writing thank you notes.

To pick up Thank You Santa! I love the idea of that!

Thank you all so much for sharing! I am setting up a letter writing center after the break and I can't wait to put all these resources together. I have just written a Letter Writing unit and I would be happy to share it with anyone who would like it. It is too big to attach on this site. E-mail me if you would like it.
