How the Book Fair Works
Attached is a flier that previews only a few of the extraordinary selections available. We have books for all ages, including adults! While you may order from the flier, plan to come to our Book Fair and experience the excitement firsthand with your child.
Help Classroom Libraries
The Classroom Wish List program works with teachers to add appropriate books to classroom libraries. You may donate teacher-selected books to your child’s classroom in your child’s name or give a gift certificate. A bookplate is provided for each book donated.
Share the Gift of Reading
You may purchase Scholastic Book Fair Gift Certificates for your children, teachers, friends, and others. Forms will be available at the Book Fair. Completed Gift Certificates will be given to the child or the recipient.
** Please be advised that the books and other articles in the Book Fair are chosen by Scholastic and not by the Media Specialist. Parents are always the best judge of what is appropriate for their children, and we suggest that parents guide their children’s Book Fair choices.
