In the original Children Just Like Me book in 1995, classrooms were able to sign up for a pen pal club, where they could exchange letters with other kids all around the world. While this specific club is no longer operating, you can still start a pen pal program for your class or school by registering through one of these organizations. Just think of all the friends waiting to be made!
