Fall Contest/Scholastic Book Club Memories

Since school is back in session, my daughter and I have had great fun thumbing through the Scholastic FIREFLY (PreK-1), SEE SAW (K-1) and LUCKY (2-3) book club flyers and ordering new books and old favorites as well as book club originals.

This month, I even ordered some Christmas presents, as the Click! catalog allows you to order Nintendo DS games.

So I couldn't help myself but to order an extra copy of this Fall favorite to have for a give-away!

Both Kayla and I just LOVE any spin on the I KNOW AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY story. Who doesn't?

(For those who know me, did you notice that the little black dog looks like our beloved little Belgian Schipperke, Dante, may he rest in peace.)

And, for those who don't appreciate the "There was an Old Lady"stories, I have added NEVER TAKE A SHARK TO THE DENTIST by Judi Barrett (Author of CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS) as an alternate choice!

There are many ways to enter this contest (deadline October 31st):

1. Follow this blog:
2. Follow On the Bus with Spike:
3. Comment on any post after October 1, 2010
4. Comment here on your favorite Scholastic Book Club book!

So to sum up the rules, you must follow this blog or Spike's Blog, and leave a comment with your contact e-mail to be a winner. Kayla will randomly select the winner on October 31st and I will contact you to get your mailing information.

You get an extra entry for following both blogs, and for commenting on your favorite Scholastic Book Club book!

BTW, if you order your Scholastic Book Club books online ( your teacher will earn a free book for the classroom. Ask your child's teacher for his/her code.

BTW, I am sorry that I can only mail to the United States at this time due to postage costs.

Thanks so much and Good Luck!


  1. Got to love Scholastic Books! I lived for the flyers as a kid - my parents would buy me those books, even though we rarely went to the bookstore. The library is great, but nothing beats owning your own books. Now DD loves them, too... we have't gotten any flyers this year yet & we're both bummed!

  2. I know you have an account with Scholastic, but if you are worried about classrooms getting free books, you can always order on Kayla's class and I will give you the books when I see you -- we usually get in once a month anyway. The flyers are online and I can always tell you when we get them. Hugs!

  3. I'm entering your contest for sure! My favorite scholastic book? Hmmm... Can it be ancient? One I bought as a child was Celery Stalks at Midnight. Another one was Ghost in My Soup. More recently, Big Chickens Fly the Coop! Too fun, that one!

  4. Good choices, Christie! I'm headed over to your blog -- thanks so much. SMOOCH!
