Being on the PJ Our Way Design Team has been so much fun! I loved doing the reviews! I hope all of you guys apply for the design team next year.
Being on the PJ Our Way national Design team was an amazing experience. We got to meet authors and a professional video-maker. Also, every member of the team gets free books with Jewish themes every month. Being a member of the Design Team was a great honor. After all, who doesn’t like getting great books every month, and learning how to make awesome videos? I learned a lot from PJ Our Way and would recommend it to anybody who loves reading and writing

The part I liked most about the PJ Our Way Design Team was making videos and reviews and reading books before they came out on the website. I liked it most because it's fun to know other people can see my work on the website, especially other members of the design team and my family back in Israel.

Hi! I’m Lucy and being on the national Design Team was a great honor! Being on the team let me create videos and reviews for some pretty great books that PJ Our Way had sent me. I loved getting the books a month before they premiered! Making the videos and book reviews made me feel like I was helping other kids with the PJ Our Way options for books. I enjoyed being able to communicate with kids all over the country, sharing a love that we all have: reading! I got to read, write, record, produce, and act while doing the Design Team and other are all things I love doing! The national Design Team was an amazing experience I hope everyone can have!

Being on the PJ Our Way Design Team was as if I was on a sports team. We all have to take part and depend on each other and do our best.

Being on the national PJ Our Way Design Team was an amazing experience that I will remember forever. It was also a great opportunity for learning things about being Jewish. I loved making new friends from all around the country.

Being on the PJ Our Way Design Team is so much fun! You get to find out what the next books are and read them. Being able to blog is pretty cool. Oh, and now whenever I check my email there is always something waiting for me! I get to make videos for the website and meet real, live authors! Once a month we meet via google hangouts with the team and talk about what is going on! Just being able to say to my friends "Hey I'm on that awesome Design Team that you were just talking about,” is so cool. The whole experience has been great!

I loved being able to be on the Design Team! It was one of the best things I have ever done. I was happy to be able to make all of the videos and meet an author. Thank you.
