Great NEW Reads from Scholastic

The other night before bed, I told my daughter that she could read 2 books before she switched off her lamp.  Half an hour later she was finally done choosing which 2 books to read.  I asked her what took her so long, and she replied with “I just love books SO much that it is hard to pick just 2!”  I know what you mean sweet girl!

Scholastic has come out with 3 new books that are sure to make choosing which book to read even harder!

Wishes by Jean Little is a delightful new picture book, where children and their wild imaginations take center stage.  In a true celebration of wishers and dreamers, Jean Little entertains readers with bouncy rhymes depicting kids’ favorite shies – from puppies to pancakes; and sundaes to snowflakes.

The Very Hungry Bear by Nick Bland – Bear is Hungry!  He’s trying to fish, but instead of food, he only manages to catch….a polar bear?  The poor bear is lost and his ice floe is rapidly melting.  The polar bear makes a deal – he’ll give Bear a pile of fish in return for a new home.  Can they find just the right home for a polar bear?

A Gold Star for Zog by Julia Donaldson – What do dragons learn at Madam Dragon’s school?  How to fly…How to Roar…How to breathe fire!  Zog is the most eager student in the class, but he’s also the most accident prone.  With each test (and each bump, bruise or scrape), his dream of earning a gold star seems further away than ever.  But a mysterious girl keeps coming to his rescue.  And when Zog faces his toughest test yet, she may be just the person to help Zog win classroom glory!

I can asked my kids which one of these delightful stories were their favorite.  The answer?  “Can we pick all of them?”  Yes kids you can 🙂  My favorite book would have to be Wishes.  I loved the rhyming phrases, and who can resist wishes?

Do you love Scholastic books as much as we do?  Are your kids book lovers too?

One of my favorite parts of school is the scholastic order form that comes home. There are so many wonderful books to choose from and lots of other fun items as well. My son usually picks at least a dozen books and then we narrow it down a bit.

I agree! My daughter attends a French school and I love the Scholastic book orders. It is a great way for us to get French books without them costing a fortune!
