Dear [Recipients Name],

I took great interest in your latest written work; "Childhood Education at Home" as published by the York Daily News. I was so moved by the work that I thought it was necessary to write and thank you in person. It has proved to be a helpful guide and has raised many ideas about childhood education.

I have yet to find the work of anyone else that is so informative as your own. I await with great anticipation for your next work. I must commend you on your job and your goals.
