How does a letter get from your home town to the other side of the world in just a few days? In this book you will see what happens at every stage of a letter's journey from Jack in England to his penpal, Kiri, in New Zealand. This information book is illustrated with photographs, maps and flow diagrams. At the end of the book is a useful timeline showing a summary of each step, which can be used to recap the procedure orally or to support children's writing outside the reading session.
