My First Microchip

A weekly (um, thus the name) highlight of elementary school was exploring the Weekly Reader. We also ordered books through Weekly Reader and Scholastic and anxiously awaited their delivery. I remember once mistakenly ordering Misty of Chincoteague (I was not into horses at all) and feeling crestfallen when it arrived, but I read it of course (I mean, it was a book after all), and thereby fell in love with all the Marguerite Henry books.

Weekly Reader - current events all through grade school. My favorite thing about elementary school!
