I just got a postcard and signed mine up for next year. Here is the website but you have to do it over the phone. Book It - They have a beginners Book It program but when I asked about it they said you had to be a
licensed daycare. I am not sure I like that, but oh well.

Yes, we are considered private schools. I even told the lady on the phone and she said just
to tell me what the name of my school was. Last year I had to think fast and just said

I quickly went through the website but couldn't get a good idea of what the program is and
how it works. Could you explain it a bit? Sounds interesting but I'd like more info. I am
currently using the accelerated reader lists for picking books for the kids. But the actual
program is way too expensive. I think I came across another program for home users (HS or
parents wanting to become more involved) at one point but can't remember what it was. Is
this similar to AR?
Thanks for any info..

Do you think it would be worth doing if you had to drive two hours to get to the closest Pizza
I'd hate to sign dd up then not be able to find the time to follow through.

Alison...its different than what you're thinking.
Book-It is when children read a set amount of books each month. They get a certificate for a
free pan pizza at Pizza Hut.

I was going to sign up for it this year, and then I realized there isn't a pizza hut close enough
to make it worthwhile. Bummer.

Kelley, I might have goofed...but I signed up using the online option. It said my teacher
materials would be mailed in mid-September.

We did Book It for several years, but the Dc have dicided that they don't want to do it
anymore. They really don't like the P.H. pizza...and the pizza's are kind of small for them....
so they say!
