In studying correspondence-based picture books, I found numerous possibilities: one single letter, one-way correspondence, back-and-forth letters between two characters, letters between many different characters, and letters used in combination with a narrative (like my favorite, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type).
Few picture books use this potentially-tricky format—to me, that indicates an opportunity!
