    We have had postcards now from the French Alps, Canada, Japan and Chester. The children are a little sad we just have one more to arrive. They have given us all a lot of pleasure rushing to see what Joe the post has brought today!

    We have as yet received just two postcards, one from Winthrop, Maine, and the other from Marlborough, Massachusetts. This was a week ago, and we are waiting for the other three to arrive.
    Both have some book recommendations, some of which are already favourites.:)

    Oh we have been having so much fun with the postcards. For the last 3 days, we’ve gotten one a day, so a total of 3 so far. I like it spread out like this because it gives the kids something to look forward to and time to study each state. Yesterday, they found Texas themselves on the map and attached the postcard with string. I was hoping they would take ownership of the project. 🙂 Thank you so much for taking the time to organize this!

    What a fabulous set of posts! Wish we had ours done time… was waiting on card x5 so I could take a photo of them all together.. now the other 4 are distributed around the house. Well at least they are loved!

    Hello all,
    It has been lovely getting excited about the post again, hasn’t it. In fact today I felt a little sad because NOTHING came in the post, not even a bill. We had all really enjoyed listening out for the clatter of the letter box!

    Hi Zoe,

    Thank you so much for organising this postcard swap, we have enjoyed it so much. Never thought we would have so much fun and learning from sending postcards across the world. We have loved all the different postcards, drawings and things we have received! We have heaps to go on for future book reading and study about different countries.

    Thank you for giving us the chance to experience this event!

    Thanks so much for doing this, it was a lot of fun, and exciting watching out for the post.
    We got one from Tokyo, but unfortunately there was no name on it, another fabulous one from Spain, including a foto and a gorgeous handmade bookmark ( thank you thank you), a hand painted one from Leeds ( coincidentally 15 miles from my hometown), and today one from North Carolina.We’ve loved reading people’s book recommendations too. Unfortunately with the exception of one there were no blog addresses on, so I can’t go there and thank people personally, so if you are reading this and you sent to us, THANK YOU! We appreciated your time, effort and creativity. XXX
