Ok, this is not really a stocking stuffer per se.
Today Jacob brought home his Scholastic order forms from preschool. I always buy books from Scholastic because they are cheaper and because the classroom recieves books because of my purchase. I always buy the $1 book located on the cover page. Today it occured to me that this is the perfect classroom gift! Every year I buy candy and pencils for Josh's classmates and end up spending about $1 each on the kids. This year I plan to buy a copy of the $1 book from the October flier for each child. Why not consider doing the same for your child's classmates?
Here's a couple reasons why:
1. It's cheap
2. Books last longer than candy
3. The classroom will earn additional books because of your purchase
4. There are children in your child's class who do not own a single book. We assume because we provide for our children that other parents do as well. But it is simply not true. Make a child's day and give them their first book.
