Scholastic Book Club Flyers
I used to love getting the Scholastic Book Club flyer when I was in grade school. I’d pore over every single page, trying to narrow down my choices. And then I’d very carefully write “Melanie Cheng” in flowing cursive with my teacher’s name. (back when I wasn’t hyphenated.) I’d check the boxes and plead with my mom for a check.
So you can imagine that as a mom of two book dragons, I’ve written my fair share of checks. Until it became an online thing, which I revolted against, as one of my friends (who was a room mom), can attest to.
While I’m still against ordering the books online, I can understand the convenience. Though I’m not always a fan of the constant emails from Scholastic.
Little Lion’s book flyer is pictured above. I forgot to order her books last month, so I made sure to take her flyer to work with me so I could diligently put in her order. Of course, as I stepped out of my car, the flyer promptly fell into a puddle. We’ve had an onslaught of (welcome) rain in Southern California.
No worries! The flyers were saved, and I managed to put in her order. Except I forgot one book and had to put in another order this morning. Sigh. I guess that it CAN be a good thing when Scholastic orders must be done online.
Here’s what we ordered this time:
Pug Pals: Yay for Vacay by Flora Ahn
Dogman: Brawl of the Wild by Dav Pilkey
Nat Geo Kids: Weird but True! Animals (We might already own this from Mini Me’s Scholastic days but I can’t find it.)
Pig the Pug 2-pack: Pig the Star and Pig the Fibber by Aaron Blabey
Who Would Win? Ultimate Jungle Rumble by Jerry Pallotta
Free book: Kiranmala and the Kingdom Beyond: The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani DasGupta
Forgotten book: Upside Down Magic: Weather or Not by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, and Emily Jenkins
Books she’ll love for a minute and books that she’ll love forever.
Yes, my house is inundated with books, even with book donations. We plan on building a Little Free Library for children’s books only so we can share the wealth.
Tell Dr. Bookworm!
What were your favorite Scholastic books? Do you remember ordering books through the flyers? I think if I was getting the flyers in my twenties, then I would have read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone sooner. :D
