Scholastic Book Giveaway

Ever since I was a kid, I have been enamored with Scholastic books. I remember the sheer joy of getting their club fliers at school. My son’s school doesn’t seem to give out the flyers enough (such slackers), so I rely on book fair time to stock up.  With the Olympics well underway, the whole world is pretty much caught up in Winter Sports fever. Scholastic put together a great Gold Medal book list to help get your kids into the Olympic spirit. These books include a wide range of fun reads for kids ages 4-14! Check out the list and see if any of your child’s favorites are on it!

It’s just great practice for the Winter Games!

  • Mystery at the Olympics: Rush for the Gold by John Feinstein

After years of early morning training and more jumps than she can count, Esperanza’s dream of figure skating for the United States is coming true at last! But with the excitement of an Olympic slot comes new attention — and BIG distractions. Suddenly Espi can’t go out with her friends, or even out her back door, without reporters and autograph-seekers following her every move. Her new teammates have a lot more international experience, and they let Espi know that they don’t think she’s ready. Hunter Wills, the men’s figure skating champion, seems to be flirting with her, even as the press matches her up with Danny Morrison, the youngest — and maybe cutest — member of the U.S. hockey team.
