IT's the $80 a pop scam. They get get $80 from each victim and they hope they get 1000 people to think it can't be a scam because it's only $80. While you will most likely get the $60 book, the book is absolutely worthless to anyone other than the folks whose kids are in it. Kind of likely being in Who's Who for Parents who think their child is Adorable.
