As most of you know, here at THE STACKS we have a whole section of personalized goodies called MY PROFILE. It's personalized for you because YOU create it and fuel it! It's a total online community for kids who love books. Plus it's safe because it’s moderated by the folks at scholastic.com.
You can create your own Avatar. Are you feeling funky, trendy, "green" or sporty? Well you can design your own look and change it at your whim. Pick your mood, hair style, accessories, crazy background, etc. Also, if you subscribe to THE STACKS Blast Newsletter, you get the Profile Spirit Week updates that tell you how to make your Avatar show your STACKS spirit!
Chat on the Message Boards and connect with tons of kids who are into the same stuff you are. My personal fave is The Baby-sitters Club Message Board. Kids talk about everything from the books, to their own lives and what they are going through, and they help each other and give great advice.
