There are many nice things about working for a college, including the fact that the education department allows me to fulfill my childhood dreams and go crazy with the Scholastic Book Order.

Now, if you don’t know, the Scholastic Book Order was a little brochure that came out every month that sold, duh, books. In my elementary school we’d get it on Friday afternoons and I’d look over every page and carefully circle the books I wanted. I never actually got any books (we could never afford it) but oh I love the choosing.

Now I’ve got the baby monkey who is a little person who loves books. We read to him every day, usually multiple times a day. His current favorite book is “Cars and Trucks and Things That Go” by Richard Scarry. My current least favorite book? “Cars and Trucks and Things That Go” by Richard Scarry. I am TIRED of reading this particular book.

So, hopefully this will help:

    I love book orders. Isn’t it funny how the offerings haven’t changed much since we were in school. You should look at books by Jon Scieszka, he writes some of Tyler’s favorite truck/digger books.

    Oh man, I totally forgot about Scholastic Book Orders!!!
    A flood of memories is coming back.

    Somehow I got sucked into watching lots of The Busy World of Richard Scarry. Try watching that worm thing jump around all day…woof

    I see a zillion readings of Diggers and Dumpers in your future! I just got my order too. Tonight it was If You Give A Moose A Muffin. Jack is obsessed with the If You Give A… books. I was glad to get these because if I had to read If You Give A Cat A Cupcake one more night I might have lost it 🙂

    One of the books we got was Dig Dig Diggers and I think we read that one 5 times tonight. If You Give A Pig A Pancake got 2 reads and he was the Diggers and Dumpers book got about 15 reads.

    But, Cars and Trucks stayed on the shelf, so WIN!
