About the Book.
A long, long time ago, before email and texting, the mail was delivered in a much slower way. It was called Snail Mail. Although it took much longer, everyone agreed that letters were a little more special when they were delivered by Snail Mail. One such letter was sent by a Girl to the Boy she loved, and it was up to four special snails to deliver her card across the country.
As the four snails trekked across the country—through desert heat and dangerous blizzards, across mountains and plains, through cities and forests—they found that taking time to slow down and look around made the journey even more beautiful.
Snail Mail’s story encourages kids to approach life with determination and wonder, and Julia Patton’s rich illustrations showcase America’s diverse terrain and national monuments from coast to coast. Kids and parents alike will delight in this celebration of America’s beauty and the power of a simple handwritten letter.
