E-mail a Friend

So-so or Great? Communicate!

Did you enjoy reading Tomás and the Library Lady? What did you like most about it? Would you tell your friends to read it? Use your e-mail program to send an e-mail to a friend, telling him or her all about the story. Remember to use the e-mail tips on this page when you write your message.


  1. Type a title in the subject line.
  2. Keep your paragraphs short so they're easy to read. Skip a line between them.
  3. Don't use all capital letters. In e-mail, this is like shouting at someone!
  4. Follow the rules of good writing.
  5. Proofread your e-mail before sending it.
