A visit to the Scholastic Headquarters and store proved to be quite the event for bloggers in New York City.

We were greeted by Ms. Frizzle and rode to the event in yellow school buses.

We met wonderful authors.

And caught up with our friends.

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast.

We learned all about Scholastic.  The new books.  The favorites.  And how Scholastic benefits children, teachers and schools.

And we left with a big bag full of books.

If you pop over to the Scholastic blog you will also find their recap of the event, blogging tips from a few of us who attended (feel free to add your own in the comments) and view photographs on their Flickr page.

What a wonderful recap, Tonya! My little dry bagel and cable news broadcast this Saturday morning seem a bit of a come-down! 😉

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend thus far! Hugs to you and your crew…and hoping we see each other again soon in equally lovely context. 🙂
