OFFER ENDS SOON...ACT NOW!!!!!!

I was cleaning out my daughter’s backpack this morning because (HURRAY!) she’s the school district’s problem again, when I came across these beauties:



Just take a moment to admire the detail…

So all this time I’ve been pouring over proofs of posters and stickers, when all I really needed to do was consult my 8-year-old…apparently she had it all figured out. A pencil and some yellow sticky notes. Sheer. Marketing. Genius!

Who cares that third graders aren’t my target demographic. Let’s just say she’s thinking outside the box, right?

Although, I have to wonder…if these are what was left of her inventory, how many do you think she passed out at school? How many members of THE BODY FINDER CLUB are there???

By the way, check out the back…sticky notes might not have been the best choice for “Club Cards”. Unless their dual purpose was to pick up all those pesky cookie crumbs from the bottom of your backpack. If so, then, mission accomplished, Abigail!

And as far as I can tell, these are the last two, so if you’re serious about joining you’d better act fast!!! I’m not sure what the member benefits are (aside from these sweet card/crumb magnets, of course), but it probably comes with some sort of secret handshake. Or maybe even a free vaccine against the cooties.

I’ll have to ask when she gets home.

Elie said...

don't you just love it when your kids do something like this. My two bring me smiles on a regular basis.

So cool! I think kids are the best marketers. My son wants to put my book cover on a t-shirt to wear to school. Never mind that it's not MG or YA...

Danielle said...

I wish I could join! haha :)

Tam said...

I'm so excited! I have full access to the Club President so I should be able to secure my membership in no time. Gosh, I hope she hasn't changed the handshake or anything, since the last two cards WENT MISSING and that could be a security breach...

Tammy Everton said...

Abby's always planning ahead.... I want in, You'll have to show me the secret hand shake, I know the code word.. LOL Call me.

Kimberly Franklin said...

Aww...so sweet and incredibly cute!

ORION said...

I only want to be in the club if I get a spy ring too...lol!

Lisa and Laura said...

I want in, but she's got to share the cookies that generated those crumbs. Deal?

PJ Hoover said...

OMg, that is too precious! I want to join. How do I get my stickie note?

Lenore said...

Those cookie crumbs might come in handy someday.

A friend of mine, the author John Whitbourn, wrote an entire trilogy because of something elementally poetic his young daughter said to him one day. She walked into his study and asked, 'Dad, what's a Down Lord?'

Katie said...

you MUST frame those. So cute!

Kimberly Derting said...

Good news, everyone! I'm pretty sure I can get my hands on more sticky notes, so there may actually be some more memberships available in the near future. I'll let you know!

dirtwhitecandy - Great story! I'm always eavesdropping on my kids...you never know what'll spark something.

Little Ms J said...

This kid is either going to be in marketing, a lawyer or a con man. I love it. I so wish I could hear how she's offering up memberships to her friends at school.

First, congrats on the book coming out! Whoohoo!

I was just glancing through a few past posts and stumbled upon this one. Abby did an awesome job passing out those stickies, Derek and Dean both had them in their backpacks (collecting I don't know what...and I'm thinking it's safe to leave it at the "I don't know," part).


Smart little gal you've got there.

Kimberly Derting said...

OMG, Diane, that is SO FUNNY that the boys had the club cards...those are a rare commodity ;) I seriously wondered what parents thought when they found those...The Body Finder, hmmm.
