A nifty little book to help moms and dads connect with their offspring. (Edmonton Sun 2000-08-25)
A small-format paperback treasure. (Larry Larson Fresno Bee 2000-08-17)
Children are subjected to great stress and anxiety while growing up in a dangerous and fast changing world. Parents struggle too, especially to find ways to communicate with their children and to show how much they care. This practical and valuable little book presents a proven method of staying in touch with your children throughout their school years. "Lunch Box Letters" is the result of the experience of two parents who--separately--wrote notes to their children on a regular basis and were immensely encouraged, by the results. Now they show how you can use their successful method to communicate with your own kids.... They will be thrilled. And you'll find that with this book to help you, the message takes almost no time at all. (Heart to Heart.com 2011-01-24)
Though Lunch Box Letters includes 75 two-sided and brightly printed tear-out notes ready for your own note to your child, in this case the message really is more important than the medium. Sperandeo and Zimmerman's thoughts on making lunch box letters--or any other kind--work for you is by far the most valuable part of the book.... This book is intended to be used cover-to-cover. Don't simply give in to the temptation to pull one of the perforated letters out and start scribbling. Sperandeo and Zimmerman make a good case for written communication with the young people in your life and how to act on it. It's advice that literary-minded parents will take to heart. (Monica Stark January Magazine)
Certain to put a smile on the face of the kids in your life. (San Diego Family)

In the preface the authors share why they write to their children, and they include sample letters, special hints and lots of colorful notepaper to give your creative juices a jolt. Each sheet has a headline at the top ("I'm Sorry", "Almost The Weekend", "Let's Have Fun", "Happy Birthday", "You're A Terrific Kid", "Miss You", etc.) and ample space for you to leave your own message. A fun riddle is also included at the bottom. There are also some blank lined sheets in the back of the book.
I was also pleased to read the number of ways the authors suggest you use letter writing to communicate with your children. A small handwritten note can really give kids a much needed emotional lift and ease pressures at school. They even include sample letters for specific (and delicate) situations such as dealing with a personal loss.
I definitely think this book is worth a buy. The advice and ideas you glean from the authors alone is worth the price, as is the gentle prompt it gives you to set a great example for your kids.
As the book says, "Written notes provide a complement to all the hugs and kisses your provide."
The next 75 pages are colorful papers with headers and graphics for writing the notes. These can be tucked inside a lunch box, briefcase, purse, or whatever. There are several birthday, Halloween, and Valentine pages for multiple recipients. As you tear out the pages the book will begin falling apart, but the confidence of the ones who get the notes will grow.
For the information, ideas, and colorful papers, this is well worth the cost. Who knows, it might just make your day as well. Five stars.
My daughter especially loves getting emails from whichever parent isn't with her at the time. I'm going to share this book with her dad, who sometimes finds it hard to put his feelings into words.
First I would like to thank the seller for being so professional and informative!!!
I got an email from amazon asking me to write a comment - I thought it was about the PRODUCT and I didn't realize i was leaving a comment for the seller. Either or I briefly mentioned that the book had one page ripped out before getting the book. However since I love the book and the price of the book was so CHEAP I thought oh well....
Turns out the seller sent me an email ASAP saying how sorry they were as they didn't realize it was missing a page. Processed a refund (never even asked for one - as like I said I love the book regardless) and then explained what my review did and how much they care...
There should be more companies/people like them! Great customer service!
Personally I love this book. I always have great ideas and but often find myself not knowing what to say. With all the encouragement and reference points in this book made is so easy for me to write a cute creative note for my children. My daughter this morning told me how much she loved my note and how "cool" she felt to have a mommy write a cool poem. LOL --- I stole it from the book!!!! :) Either or I love this book! Just another great way to remind my children how much I love them and keep the communication going!!!
