Scholastic Book Fair
Remember being a young kid in Elementary school and receiving the Scholastic Books form to order books and you'd either circle or you'd just list all the books you wanted and hoped beyond hope that mom and dad would agree to spend a fortune on books? I always loved those flyers that we got monthly. And we ordered some really decent books from there when I was a youngster--back in the dark ages.
Well, now it's my little one's turn to bring home the flyers and beg and plead to get us to buy her books. And it's not like she doesn't have any books, we have a ton of books, and buying newer books for her is equally as fun! Last night at her school was the Scholastic Book Fair. I really wasn't sure what to expect. What kind of books would they have, how many people would be there and what would Lily want??? Well she's been talking about this Taylor Swift book (can I just mention that these 'biographies' are just really poorly written and all the information is gathered from other sources??).
I browsed through the racks, elbowing when necessary, pulling to show Lily what was available and trying to persuade her to get some 'books' as opposed to the Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana bio. So we came away with:
It's Raining Cupcakes, Lisa Schroeder (Scholastic doesn't publish it, but they sold it!)
Purplicious, Victoria Kann, Elizabeth Kann
Pinkalicious, Victoria Kann, Elizabeth Kann
Llama Llama Mad at Momma, Anna Dewdney
Taylor Swift: Her Song, Riley Brooks
