On this Thursday we are having fun looking at President Bush broccoli letter by 5yearold! Given the 5-year-old is named Cooper and our puppy is named Cooper I took an immediate interest in reading this story especially since Cooper has expressed interest in broccoli while I was preparing my Kale Broccoli Salad recently!
There was a story on June 27 about a letter that was sent
I’ve enclosed an image of the hand printed letter on notebook paper.
