    1 thought on “Seven Little Postmen”

    1. I know I knowThis book may seem "a little" under my reading level. And, it is. But, it's also a childhood favorite of mine. And it's one of the books that we've been reading to the kids. (Well, "kids-to-be," if you want to get technical.)Something that I didn't really understand when reading this as a child - and can appreciate as a former employee of the US Postal Service - is that this book does a fairly accurate, if simplified and a little outdated, job of describing how a litter moves throug [...]

    2. Seven Little Postmen carried the mailThrough Rain and Snow and Wind and HailThrough Snow and Rain and Gloom of NightSeven Little PostmenOut of sight.Over Land and SeaThrough Air and LightThrough Snow and RainAnd Gloom of Night--Put a stamp on your letterAnd seal it tight.

    3. Even after the advent of FedEx and UPS, I still have a soft spot for the United Postal Service. This book reminds us all of what a miracle something like a postal service, even if the seven little postman look kind a like interchangeable pod people.

    4. Definitely not the greatest. The rhymes randomly stop, which makes for an awkward read. I'd like to see the illustrations updated to reflect the variety of people working for the postal service.

    5. Horrible, horrible book. It rhymes! Except when it randomly doesn't. You'll be reading the book to your children, start bouncing along with the cadence of the rhyme, and it will just. disappear. Maybe Margaret Wise Brown lost her rhyming dictionary?It tells your children that when the mail truck comes to an intersection, EVERYONE ELSE STOPS TO LET THEM THROUGH. Like an ambulance, but more so. Goodnight Moon is legend in our house. This book has become legend as well, but mainly for how awful it [...]

    6. There is actually a poem by the same title in the back of the book that this story is based off of. The entire premise is that a little boy has a secret to tell his grandmother, so he sends it in a specially sealed letter through the mail. Very little mail seems to be sent this way today, aside from bills that adults read, so children don't have the same experience with this mode of communication as they used to. It makes for an even more interesting story as they learn just how things used to w [...]

    7. the art has a nice charm, and i like that it focuses on all the unseen work that goes into delivering the mail. However, the book is from a 1952 alternate universe where all US letter carriers were white men in a completely caucasian america. it also seems to want to rhyme but doesn't, which is really frustrating. i like the poem at the end:Seven Little PostmenOut of sight.Over Land and SeaThrough Air and LightThrough Snow and RainAnd Gloom of Night-Put a stamp on your letterAnd seal it tight.

    8. You've become more interested in the processing of the mail in this book, and wrote and sent a letter to grandma inspired by the book. You also recently acted out gathering, dumping out, and putting mail into a mailbox (tissue box) like the postmen in the book, including delivering letters to various stuffed animals.

    9. Not Margaret Wise Brown's finest hour I think. The tale of a letter going from a boy to his grandmother. It contains a secret so he puts a wax seal on it. Do kids these days know what that even is? I don't think I've ever seen one. Still, nice to see how the letter gets to Granny. The rhymes are a bit forced I think though, still enough interest to hold a modern toddlers attention.

    10. I almost want to rate this 4 instead of 5 stars, as the rhyme/rhythm of the book isn't as flowing as most children's books. However, once I read it out loud a few times through to my child, I got the hang of how to time words and which words to emphasize to really keep it going smoothly and in sync,

    11. A rhyming story from my youth. Gave to great nephew Joren for his 4th birthday. Yes he also got a U.S. Mail truck and a post office box.

    12. It's a cute little story, but it can't make up its mind as to whether it is going the route of rhythmic prose or true-blue rhyming. The interchange feels choppy and forced.

    13. The seven little postmen deliver mail swiftly, efficiently, and cheerfully, and with a good deal of charm. This obviously is a work of primitive science fiction.

    14. This is the book that made me want to write letters and have other people write letters to me. It changed my life at a very young age.

    15. Oh my gosh, I still have my copy of this Golden Book that I read over and over when I was a kid!
