Before he makes it to the mailbox to post his letter, he sees Mrs. Green trying to get her cat down from a tree. He opens his letter and adds a P.S. telling God Mrs. Green needs help, too.
Then, he finds his friend Sam sitting on the curb looking sad because her father lost his job. So, he adds a P.S.S. to the letter about Sam. When he sees a beautiful rainbow he adds a P.S.S.S. thanking God for it.
After posting his letter, Tyler finds Sam happily playing with her dad and Mrs. Green holding her act in her arms. He then writes a thank-you letter to God.
The illustrations by Tammie Lyon are colorful and expressive and sure to please young readers.
What I Like: This book is based on a true story of Tyler Doughtie. When Tyler passed away at the age of nine after being diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, his father found letters Tyler had written to God when he was ill. This story, one of child-like faith, is one everyone can learn from.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Excellent.
Age Appeal: 4-8.
