Make a new friend, discover a new book – stay connected through a love of stories.

Books & Mail go together and have a powerful way of keeping us connected.
As we begin a new school year with many children moving to online schooling, this is a fun way to stay connected. It’s a bookish pen pal to keep kids connected and reading.

Getting mail from all over the world is fantastic – getting reading suggestions is even better.
Bonus: buying stamps helps support the USPS!

It’s free and open worldwide!
