    looking for a good $1 book for third graders. I like to give as holiday gift. I use my points! Anyone find anything good on Scholastic?

    The one dollar specials are always a good choice. They're advertised on the front page when you log in to the book club site. I usually buy whatever the special is when I order for my class.

    The following are all $1, as of this morning:
    Dragon Rider
    Chronicles of Narnia #1
    The Snow Day from the Black Lagoon
    Wait Till Helen Comes
    Giraffes Can't Dance
    The Thing About Yetis
    The Magic Finger (Roald Dahl)
    The Secret Garden
    Space Cows ( :rofl:)
    Sneezy the Snowman
    Frindle

    And many others...

    I ended up getting a variety the last time I ordered, so kids could choose :)

    Lots of good choices there. I recommend not getting The Thing About Yetis... It was very boring to read aloud. The Dragon Rider looks interesting.

    I read a summary of Dragon Rider. Not what I’d pick for grade 3

    I had gotten Because of Winn Dixie for $1 in September.
    Not sure if it's still there.
    I actually asked for 26 people to sponsor my class this year.
    $9 per sponsor gives each student a $1 book a month.

    Jealous! In Canada, our book deals are $2.00. I’d love to have dollar books!

    A little too late now, but I like buying the value packs of books. I recently purchased a pack of 8 different winter-themed books for $10.00.

    Sorry to be replying so late-I ordered for my 3rd graders "The Dog Who Saved Christmas, and Other True Animal Tales-Lexile 870 which is a bit high for a about half my class but hey maybe they can ready it next year or read it with their parents. It was $1 or 50 points, I combined this months " $10 worth of free books" offer and I got 10 free and bought 10 and got 6 more with points so I only had to spend 10 bucks.
