UPDATE: CLOSED…and the winner is: Jennifer who said: Thinking WAY back to kindergarten, I’d have to say my favorite book was Little Miss Sunshine and the others in the set. I loved when my teacher read all of those to us.
…yeah! Winner, Winner, WINesday is here … and I am excited to kick things off by sharing something that I am really passionate about… BOOKS! I was recently asked to be a Scholastic Book reviewer, and of course I jumped at the chance!!
I just happen to the the official “Scholastic Mom” for my son’s classroom … I pick up the monthly catalogs, sort them, and write a monthly letter that goes home with parents explaining the process. (email me if you would like a copy of the letter that I created to introduce parents to the program) I make little sticker labels to go on the children’s coats reminding them when book orders are due back … and I strongly encourage parents to order online. (teachers actually earn even more when parents shop online, and it is easy!) Did you know that every Scholastic Book order features several books that are only $1.00!!?? ONE DOLLAR! Seriously, ask a teacher if you can be a classroom Scholastic Mom… you’ll make her day!
What books did we choose to review? My son selected the Spiderman Phonics Fun book set. He is learning to read and just loves these books. I love how affordable Scholastic books are!! It is so fun to see a child learn to read, and I have noticed how much more excited they get when they are reading about something they love (spidey!) … anyone notice my son’s subtle little “Spidey” hand gesture, lol? He thought that was pretty clever!
The other book that we selected was My Mommy Hung the Moon, by Jamie Lee Curtis. SUCH a darling “Love Story” … and so fun to read with your kids … this book makes us laugh out loud, and I know that my kids feel my love for them when we read it. Awesome book!
The Giveaway: …in celebration of upcoming Mother’s Day … one lucky She Saved reader will win a hardback copy of My Mommy Hung the Mooon!
