Have you ever written to a Pen Pal? Or, do you know someone who is just starting to learn English? Well, Jenny's dealing with both. In DEAR WHISKERS by Ann Whitehead Nagda, Jenny's class must write letters to the second grade pretending to be mice. Everyone gets a response except for Jenny. She learns that her pen pal, Sameera, is from Saudi Arabia and is just starting to learn English. At first this is discouraging for Jenny, but she thinks of some creative ways to help Sameera learn English and return her correspondence. Perfect for 1st - 3rd graders, or those just starting to read chapter books.
