Scholastic Book Fair

Before the Spring break, the school where my Burritos goes hosted their Annual Book Fair, partnering with Scholastic.  I like the slogan  of Scholastic which  says "Read Everyday, Lead a Better Life".  Parents  were invited to come to  help the little ones in picking the books that they want to buy.  I only gave my kids $10 each but I ended up paying $50 more for both of them which I don't mind because I like books myself.  I prefer to buy them books over toys.
As expected, Mr. Burrito chose  a book about Hot Wheels.  He said that it would help him familiarize of his collection so I was convinced and bought it for him.  Ms. Burrito on the other hand, got two science books and an animal book.  Her teacher was surprised that she chose those books as those  are for higher graders.  I wasn't surprise at all as I know that she loves anything about Science  she takes that from my husband who also love Science.

I know that I am very hard on my kids sometimes but you know, I don't regret it because I know along the way, they would learn the things they need to.  I am the disciplinarian  at home, my husband is a happy go lucky guy  who is always my kids best friend.  I think, I got my father's way of raising us when we were kids.
My son  complains sometimes when I let him sit and read but  it paid off as he  was awarded  for an outstanding  reading ability.  Since then, he is inspired to read  everyday without me telling him.
For the fun part, here's my Burritos  being goof balls, literally as she put the ball inside her  dress lol.
Have a peaceful and safe Easter Celebration to  all.

  1. My children loved to read as well when they were young and they still do. They also learn from watching us read.

  2. Reading definitely develops the cognitive skills of young children. I was amused with the last photos of the Burritos, Rose. Nakakatuwang tingnan! LOL!

  3. Reading is very important to kids. If they develop the love of reading when they're still kids, they will still carry it until they're grow old. Reading is learning, so I'm having for your kids.

  5. I've noticed that when read sometimes at night it seems to encourage our boys to read when they go to bed, even though we haven't asked them to.

  7. I have also been a big proponent for reading. I have always encourage my son to read and he still loves it. He is 15 and reads everyday. I used to reward him with books when he was younger at the book fairs at his school.

  11. Your love seems to you to be tough love - discipline is an act of love that your children will always remember. To instill a love of reading is to get them both to have a joy of learning that will propel them to study and work hard. Your tough approach is true love...Happy Easter to you and yours!

  15. You got smart achievers with these two Burritos. And it's only right to be strict, someday, they'll thank you for it.

  16. Oh, what a great fair! I'm with you, money isn't but the happiness and learning are the most important! More books, more reading and learning! :)

  17. It is good that you introduced them into reading in their early age. I kinda regret that I wasn't into reading when I was a kid since I am having difficulty with reading comprehension.

  18. I love the school book fairs because they really do get the kids excited about books and reading. I just have to manage my kids' expectations BEFORE we go so they know in advance how many books or how much money I am willing to spend. Nothing crushes the joy of the book fair more than leaving with a crying child because mom wouldn't buy the entire $110 collection of their favorite series.

  21. There's the same book fair at Triz's school and she had a blast with the books from Scholastic especially that I alloted some amount of money to buy the books she wanted. Reading is worth it, always!

  24. You are right, books are better than toys and that's a wise decision for parents too to get their kids educational stuff rather then toys that don't last a long time.
