This is a really good book that I read while in fifth grade and it really helped me deal with a lot of unresolved issues that I had with my parents divorce. I still cry when I read this book, I've been through it so many times that I have most of it memorized. This book is great for children form 10-14 and can even be used for kids slightly younger than this depending on their reading level. It is a funny and emotional book that is easy for children to relate to because it is written form the point of view of a child. This is my all time favorite children's book, and it deserves more parse than it has accumulated.

I have read this book so many times and it is worth reading! It is showing you the way to write a letter, in a way, and also telling you a story!

This is a wondeful book that I remember reading in elementary school and have just been able to enjoy with my 8 year old. Beverly Cleary really captures the emotion of the protagonist Leigh Botts as he sruggles with issues of loneiness, self-doubt, parents divorce and just trying to be a kid. Cleary's descriptive wriing is very absorbing. There are interesting vocabulary words in the book that are fun to talk about with your kids like mimeograph and some foodie words like quiche as the mother works as a caterer. It is also not too overwhelming for early independent readers as the book is broken up into letter and journal entries. I highly recommend this for any beginning to read independently reader.

This Newberry Medal book follows elementary student Leigh Botts as he writes letters to his favorite author, Mr. Henshaw. The book deals with Leighs parents divorce and the effect it has on Leighs relationship with his dad. A great book for reluctant readers or students who need another outlet to express themselves.

This is an amazing children's novel, it was one of my very favorites growing up. A young boy gets an assignment to write to an author, and that starts up a correspondance with Mr. Henshaw. This book is hilarious and very well written, and ever since reading it in this book I've used the "Deliver De Letter / De sooner de better / de later de letter / de madder I getter" :) Great for young children, it's fun and encourages reading as a fun activity beyond school assignment.
