In2Books (ePals Foundation)

Rewarding, engaging, fun and MEANINGFUL! I've been an In2Books pen pal for three years and every year I've loved exchanging letters with my student pen pal about great books! My pen pal, Austin, and I are currently reading a biography of Gandhi and discussing what it means to be a hero.

I plan to participate for years to come!

I cannot think of anything I'd change about In2Books. If only more adults and children could be lucky enough to participate!
