It’s been a while since I’ve written anything here. The end of school and the first few weeks of summer are always crazy busy at my house. But now I’m back with lots to share from recent trips and my personal archives. Today, I’m sharing something that will bring back some memories of school.
Remember these? They’re still being published, although they’re now a part of Schlastic (another longtime educational publishing house). This particular issue came out when I was in second grade…..a long time ago.
I have no idea why this was saved, or who decided to save it (was either my mom or me). As a kid I always liked money, especially the spending part, to the point that my parents thought they were raising a major spendthrift, no matter what they tried (this has since changed). But, saving it could have been a random thing, too.
My own kids were not exposed to Weekly Readers in school, though they bought many books from the company’s book club. In fact, they had no idea what I was talking about when I mentioned Weekly Reader or Scholastic’s similar offering.
I can’t say that Weekly Reader was a huge part of my education. But I do remember reading and discussing some interesting articles with my classmates. Yet, it brings back fun memories from my childhood and I am glad this was saved, for whatever reason.
