Kohls has this great program called Kohls Cares, most teachers are probably already aware of it :). But, I think it is amazing! They sell popular children's books and a character plush toy to go with it! You can get both the book and the toy for only $5 each...I think that is a steal! They usually sell a different book and character each quarter. I have previously gotten Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat and Pout Pout Fish. The latest one I bought was Curious George.
He is too cute! They even offered a few different Curious George books to go with him. I usually purchase these online through Kohls because sometimes the store doesn't have it all, and most of the time these things are sold out in a week or two. Parents and teachers go crazy over these things. I use them to decorate my classroom, and also let the kids use the toy as a reading buddy. We also do a different book and character each month. The kids love it.
