The Lost Package

The Lost Package
By Richard Lan, Illustrated by Jessica Lanan

A girl in New York mails a package to San Francisco. Instead of accompanying the rest of the shipment onto the plane, the package falls to the side of a New York street. Fortunately, it is discovered by a boy, his dog, and his mother – who happen to be moving to San Francisco, where the package is hand-delivered along with new friendship.

It is very touching how the boy and his mother use the opportunity to deliver the package as a way to make connections in their new home.

This story is a love letter to the US Postal Service. In the author’s note, Richard Lan shares how his father’s job with the USPS provided the foundation for his loving upbringing.
