Mailman Mike!

A sweet book about a young boy named Timmy who is mailing
his Grandma a letter about his new puppy.

Mailman Mike brings letters, magazines and free samples to Timmy's house.
He brought packages and picture post cards from faraway places.

Timmy worries because it is taking so long for his letter to get to his Grandma. His letter has to travel by airplane and train!

One day, finally the letter is in Mailman Mike's mailbag

Mailman Mike is worried though... Timmy is not waiting for him today!

Mailman Mike rings the bell, looking for Timmy....

Mailman Mike is surprised to see Timmy has something better than a letter.... His Grandma came to visit!!

Timmy proudly tells his Grandma, Mailman Mike knows everything! And rain or shine, he always comes to see me by half-past nine!

I am just like Timmy... I love getting mail... maybe that's why I love the swaps so much!!

I'm linking up to Lil' Vintage Story Books.



  1. What a sweet story! My oldest son would love it- he has a special relationship with his grandma...
    Thanks so much for linking up with us this week! Hope to see you again!

  2. Mailman Mike...I haven't seen this one. What a great little story. Part of the fun of this sweet series is seeing the little books you haven't seen before. Smiles...Renee

  3. This is such a cute story for all of us mail lovers! You might also like the Seven Little Postmen.


  4. What a great story!! Love the illustrations, and that sweet puppy's face!! ;) xo Heather

  5. Your book is so cute. Rand McNally books have the best little pictures.

  6. I remember this book. I think I have it somewhere. I need to dig it out! It was wonderful.

  7. Ahh.... I love the old graphics in the old books... I think this one is from about MY time.... YIKES. It's really scary when you have to put your birth year on one of those twirly do-hickeys on the net and you have to roll down.......and down.......and down some more. Phoooey.

    I think I'd have to change the Grandma's name to Hemma... :-)

    Thanks for following. I'm going to follow you back.


  8. Sweet story! Love the graphics in those old story books - some wonderful artists illustrated many of the earliest children's picture books.
