Ganz certainly is turning into a greedy monster. I am finding I can do without them more and more--and enjoying things that I used to enjoy before I became a WW addict. And there are plenty of free games on facebook for when I really need a virtual reality fix!

I know of teachers who use Webkinz as a reward for work accomplished or an incentive for those with special needs.

I am hoping they will place the books in a separate library area, but am guessing they would have done that already and announced the change of placement when the tales were removed from the newspaper.

How sad that Ganz has taken one more thing away. But, I must admit it doesn't surprise me. Ganz seems to be making one poor decision after another lately........

Thank you so much WI for saving these stories and making them available for future use!

Well this doesn't surprise me. It's been clear for some time that Ganz has lost site of their "supposed" target base of children, and are now looking for pure profit any way they can get it from the parents.

I'm a HUGE supporter of reading for young children. I volunteer at our military base once a month to read to 4th graders and I always ask them to read a book before I return. During the break after I read they share their stories and I praise them up and down for the accomplishment. The teacher tells me that just that little encouragement motivates her class to read at least one book a month.

We've made reading a priority with our own two children and they are now both in college, both on the Dean's list, and both greatful that reading was a large part of their childhood. It breaks my heart to see WW take any part of a reading program out of their options but like I said, children don't have credit cards so why bother right Ganz?

Looks like I'll have to add "Bring back the books!" to my daily "Bring back the Family Deluxe option!" in the newspaper's comment section.

Come on, GANZ! It's bad enough we've got to spend more real money on Deluxe memeberships, without having to spend more WW KC on books!! What is going on with you people? Hooray for WI, WI saves the day and our KC!!

That's a real bummer. They took away the Webkinz Contests too. But I guess they can't have the Communal Contests and the Webkinz Contests.
Oh well! Thanks WI for the virtual library. Really helps alot.
