"Polly's Pen Pal" is about two little girls, one living in Canada and one living in the United States. The two girls discuss what they look like and how much they have in common. One tells the other their height in centimeters and the other one's dad helps her figure out how tall that is. Polly's dad is going on a business trip to Montreal and Polly is tagging along to meet her new pen pal. This is a great book for partner reading since it talks about 2 friends. The grade level of this book is probably 3rd or 4th grade.
