The Scholastic book fair is once again coming to our school next week. It will be nice to get some new books on the shelf. However, I was a little disappointed when the Scholastic flyer arrived in my son’s folder. I sat there at the table checking out all the titles of the books they were promoting and was saddened. Seriously, Scholastic you can do better than this.
Stay Alive #1 Crash? Cover complete with an airplane plummeting into the ocean. This is elementary school!! Good luck to the parents that are trying to get their kids on a plane for their next Disney vacation!
Zombie Goldfish, you can’t do better than that? That’s just disgusting.
What happen to books with meaning? Books that make you laugh and teach you a good life lesson? Well, I guess “staying alive” would be teaching a lesson, but this is elementary school. Am I being naive to think that kids should be wanting to read things a little more wholesome? Is it just me that finds these titles a bit inappropriate for K-4?
