This is a great Christmas book, written by local author Mark Perry. Go on a Rhode Island adventure with 'Post' Mark. This is a great gift.
Every year, Santa receives letters and 'wish lists' from boys and girls all over the world, but he hasn't seen very many letters from Rhode Island arriving by mail this year. Santa inquires with 'Post' Mark, the elf who works in his mailroom, about this mystery. 'Post' Mark believes it's because Rhode Island is very small, and there isn't much to do there, so it wouldn't merit many letters coming from such a small place.
Ho Ho Ho Post Mark!" Santa says, "Yes, Rhode Island may be the smallest of the 50 United States, but there are many fun things to see and do there throughout the whole year. Santa deploys his mailroom elf to the Ocean State, where he will collect letters and wish lists from the kids, and return them to the North Pole.
Santa instructs 'Post' Mark to start in Woonsocket to the north, and work his way south until he reaches Westerly. During his farewell, Santa asks 'Post' Mark to bring back some of Rhode Island's famous clamcakes and chowder. Along the way, 'Post' Mark meets kids in cities and towns across Rhode Island who enthusiastically share fun facts about many of the things that make Little Rhody such a great place to live and visit.
