Dear Mr. Henshaw
by Beverly Cleary; illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky

After his parents separate, Leigh Botts moves to a new town with his mother. Struggling to make friends and deal with his anger toward his absent father, Leigh loses himself in a class assignment in which he must write to his favorite author. When Mr. Henshaw responds, the two form an unexpected friendship that will change Leigh’s life forever.  This book won the prestigious Newbery Award for children's literature and is a fun book to read when teaching letter writing.
