At this time of the year the postman is busy delivering letters, parcels, and Christmas cards. They all have stamps with different colours and designs; today you can see the new Christmas stamps and hear how the first Post Office began.
Sometimes stamps show pictures of places, and on Tuesday, after seeing stamps of Wales and Scotland, Marla and Rick dress up in the traditional costumes of these two countries. On Tuesday, too, Bernard Miles tells a story called 'Racing Pigeons'; his other stories, on Thursday and Friday, are about 'Long John Silver' and 'Dapple Grey'.
