As I walked into the classroom, the Principal whispered in my ear, “You’d think we were giving away candy in this room, but no, it's books. It’s fantastic!” That is the level of excitement I heard outside of this third-grade classroom as the Scholastic Book Box arrived earlier this month.

I had the great honor of seeing one of our amazing Book Trust teachers in action last week in New York City.
I just love the magical nature of a child’s mind. My daughters are two and almost four, and when I walk in the door at the end of the day, I am immediately transported into a world of unicorns, princesses, rainbows, and singing animals. It can take me a bit of time to make the initial adjustment into the world of imagination, but once I am there, I’m so grateful.
