For kids who love God . . .

Dear Ms. Gilliam, 

I am writing to let you know how much I enjoy reading Pockets. I especially like that it is for kids who love God. My favorite part is that it teaches kids about God. I have shared some of my magazines with my friends. I hope Pockets will be published for many more years. I am home-schooled and enjoy Pockets during my activity time.

Sincerely yours,

Abbey
