A grandmother “almost forgot” a special day. So she hurries and makes some heart shaped cookies to send to her grandson—then begins the real adventure. The cookies are sent in the mail (which involves a truck, a tractor, a boat, a submarine, a whale, a helicopter, a train, a dog sled, snowshoe, and a rocket before finally being delivered. The red heart on the package (as well as the various forms of transportation) helps readers keep track of where the package is. The bright colors will also capture the attention of young readers. All in all this is a great book for kiddos who love various modes of transportation, grandmothers, or getting packages from loved ones in the mail.
