Christmas with the Rural Mail: A Poem
Illustrations: Maud Lewis
Halifax, Nova Scotia: Nimbus Pub., 2005. 31 p.
Ages 4 to 8
Bright colours and bold brush strokes depict a familiar Canadian theme: winter.
That's the essence of this picture book, a poem written by Lance Woolaver with illustrations by acclaimed painter Maud Lewis.
This clever, rhyming story describes rural mail delivery. A mail sleigh, pulled by a pony and guided by a driver, delivers parcels and letters. A visual treat awaits the reader as Ms. Lewis paints life en route, along an idyllic, white countryside.
