The Jolly Postman – book review

[3 years +] The Jolly Postman – by Janet and Allan Ahlberg


Like Each Peach Pear Plum, Janet and Allan Ahlberg again have fun with well-known fairy tale characters.  They use rhymes to introduce the characters the Jolly Postman comes across and real envelopes with letters, cards and postcards to open on each page.  It is very fun for the kids!





There is a lot for the older children as well to get from this book.  They can read the front of the envelopes and work out who they are to (eg. Mr V Bigg = the giant) or work out the puns in the witches’ catalogue.  You really have to know your fairy tales to ‘get’ the whole book 🙂

About heidelightful

Hello friend! I am a paediatric speech pathologist and health coach. My vision is to create a world where parents can understand the real link between diet and their child's health and behaviour, and know how to create true health for their family. My two young, wonderful and sensitive sons both have food intolerances and have also taught me about my own, that I have never known about until now! Topics I have looked into for my own family's health and also from my role as a speech pathologist with children with picky eating are food intolerances, fussy eaters, creating healthy eaters and eating to prevent and ‘cure’ childhood issues such as ADHD, autism, eczema/skin issues, trouble sleeping, low immunity, frequent snot/ear infections and bedwetting, to name a few. I write many posts coming from being an exhausted mum trying to keep up with fussy boys who can only eat certain foods and also as a professional who has worked with other children with similar issues. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with my husband and two boys and was previously an exchange student in Brazil! I hope to inspire you to help your child achieve their potential through health and well-being. Thanks for stopping by :) Heidi
