My granddaughter broke my heart tonight...

She's in 1st grade. She told me she had brought home a book order the other day and that it was due back tomorrow. She told me, "Grandma, I just want to order a book for just one time". I asked her if she had ever gotten to order a book yet from the orders and she told me no. I asked my daughter tonight and she said she couldn't afford it. I help them out with a lot of stuff and I think that she just never thought to ask me. I sent her home with a blank check to place an order.

My question... Are these books still the same as they used to be back in the 90's? (Scholastic)

  • Yes they are the same. I helped to hand out the same kind of book order papers that I used to have. I think that you are a wonderful grandma, and they are very lucky to have you.

  • My mom does that for my son she also takes him to the book fair when it comes. Its just something she's always done. Every time he gets one he call Grandma :)

  • It is still Scholastic! I think it means so much to the kids to get to order a book & have it delivered. There is a dad at our school who often donates anonymously so that kids who don't get to place orders can.

  • Yep, great books and cheap!! She'll be super excited when they are delivered to school =)

    My son has a grandma just like you and we're so thankful for her everyday- I'm sure your daughter and grandaughter are too!!

  • Yes. My boys have never ordered those books. Either they roll around when we're dead broke or not at all. However, the school has a book fair featuring all the books that were in the little paper that goes home. The book fair is 2 weeks and I LOVE that they do it. I pick my kids up from school... we walk into the library and they are in book heaven. I buy the book(s) they wanted and I personally, feel alot better.
