E-mail a Friend

So-so or Great? Communicate!

Did you enjoy reading Where the Red Fern Grows? What did you like most about it? Did you have any questions about the story after you finished reading 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.
