Dear [Recipients Name],

I must congratulate you on the publication of your book. I have never read such a pertinent and humorous look at the rearing of children. It is a book for all ages, and my kids laugh at the humorous anecdotes that you have shared with the reader.

It is an excellent book and a great gift to those who have brought it. I know that you will soon have a much larger audience for your work.
