Review: Molly and her brother Sam are attending Beechwood Elementary School and their next door neighbor, Ted, is far away serving aboard the USS Albacore. On his leave he builds a snowsailor with her and teaches her how to polish her Sunday shoes. Molly writes many letters to Ted during her fourth grade year and keeps track of his whereabouts on a huge map her class paints. Large water color illustrations and easy to read text make this an interesting way to read about history.
