Let the Journey Begin
Scholastic’s Book Journey is fantastic.  What a terrific & fun idea!  I selected the book, 101 Places You Gotta See Before You’re 12, for my Book Journey.  It’s packed with great ideas for family vacations, and even super ideas to stop and see places that are just around the corner.  We have so many friends and family members we want to share this book with!  Let the Journey begin!    Jamie, Michigan

Family Book
My grandma bought Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?  by Eric Carle for me at the book fair because she read it when she was in school.  I thought it would be fun to send it on a book journey to everyone in my family so we could all read it.  So far the book has traveled to my mom and dad, my sister Tracy and my cousins Ben and Lisa in Omaha. This is fun!  It’s a good book!    Megan, Indiana

Can’t Beat the Classics!
I heard about this Book Journey program from a friend and thought I would give it a try.  I gave one of my favorite books The Giver to a friend to read on vacation with her kids. She said they could not put the book down and finished the story in one day. She is now sending it on to another friend to enjoy.  Maybe we can get this classic book to travel across the country.    Kim, Maryland


Turning the Pages in Florida
My son’s teacher told us about My Book Journey.  His classroom sent out a number of books and my son’s book was Flush. He asked if he could send a book on a journey to his cousin in Pennsylvania. He picked the book Flush by Carl Hiaasen because he enjoyed Hiaasen’s other books and thought his cousin would like it as well.  My son finished the book in two days which surprised me because I have been trying to get him to read all summer and nothing has worked. After we registered on the web site and printed a bookplate for the book it was off in the mail (tip, don’t forget to send it media rate so you can save some $).  Every day my son wanted to check on the web site to see if his cousin had read the book and registered online.  Finally he saw that his cousin had gone to the Web site and put in the tracking number from the book.  My son is already reading another book to send off on another journey!
