For fans of The Word Collector and Be Kind comes a story of words, walls, and widening your world, by New York Times bestselling author Deborah Underwood.

My Thoughts:

'How do you tear down walls?
With words at first.
Then brick by brick.'

Little h lives in a small, walled-in world with the other H's and all is pleasant for them, but curious Little h wonders what's beyond the walls and what the other letters are like. And then one day, Little h finds a little hole in the wall and peeks through, seeing and making quick friends with Little i. The big H's don't want the little letters to see each other, but friendship always finds a way! 

This is such an amazing picture book that takes a world of letters, all separated by their walls and their fears of the bigger world, and brings them together to show that we are better and stronger united rather than divided. 

Every Little Letter is a wonderful reminder to all that kind words bring us together and that we can use them to tear down walls, both physical and metaphorical.  This is one picture book I'd recommend every library, teacher, and parent have on their shelves!
