We love, love, LOVE the Scholastic Reading Clubs in our house! Scholastic allows us to buy great books for our library at affordable prices. When the kids bring their book order forms home, I am as excited as they are.



This month, I wanted to add some classics to our library, and thanks to some great deals, we were able to do just that. Here’s what we picked up:

Our Scholastic Book Order Haul: September 2015

Scholastic Book Club Haul September 2015

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault – How did we not own this already? This is a classic that should be in every child’s library.

Cookie’s Week by Cindy Ward – Follow Cookie around the house while learning the days of the week!

Frederick by Leo Lionni – Lionni is one of my favorite authors, and this tale about a little mouse with a big imagination is one of my favorites.

Curious George by H.A. Rey and Margaret Rey – The book that started it all! My boys love Curious George, so it only makes sense to have the original book in our collection.

Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin – This silly story of what happens when cows get a typewriter was one of my favorite read-alouds as a teacher.

Otis and the Tornado by Loren Long – Otis the Tractor must get all the farm animals to safety before a big tornado comes!

Lola at the Library by Anna McQuinn – Lola loves Tuesdays, because she gets to go to the library with her mom!

Flora’s Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall – When Flora and her little brother get whisked away by the wind, Flora gets a unique opportunity — the chance to give her little brother away. What will she do? This is a great book for older siblings.

The Kiss Box by Bonnie Verburg  – A little bear and his mother decide to keep a kiss box, filled with a hundred kisses. That way they won’t feel lonely, even when they are apart.

Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat, Are You Going to School? by Bill Martin, Jr. – Another great first day of school book! Kitty Cat explores all there is to do at school, and shows young readers why school is so much fun.

Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan – Little Owl enjoys watching all of his friends moving around in the night. This is a great book for teaching kids about nocturnal animals.

The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don Wood – One of the very best picture books to read aloud! How can a little mouse possibly protect his strawberry from a big hungry bear? The answer may surprise you!

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson – One little boy and a crayon can create some magically creative things! This is another classic that should be in every child’s library.

Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed by Eileen Christelow – The monkeys are at it again! It’s time for bed, but the monkeys would rather stay up reading. What will Momma do?

Fish is Fish by Leo Lionni – A little fish dreams of being on land like his frog friend. More of Lionni’s beautiful work.

Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes – Chrysanthemum loves her unique name…until kids at school start making fun of it. A great book about dealing with teasing and self-esteem.


All of this was only $28!


Does your family love book orders as much as we do? I’d love to hear about your recent finds.
