Herman's Letter

Herman's LetterOur October children's picture book of the month is Herman's Letter by Tom Percival.

What do you do when your best friend in the whole wide world has to move a long way away? Promise to write to each other ALL the time and to stay best friends FOREVER, that's what.

But it's easier said than done – especially when your best friend seems to be having much more fun than you are...

Join Herman the bear as he embarks upon one epic journey to deliver a very special letter and to ensure that his friendship with Henry the raccoon really is FOREVER.
