Book Fair Bonanza

My very first book fair is underway. I was tentative about the book fair. Usually the conversations I hear about book fairs are not positive ones. Maybe I am missing something, but so far it hasn't been a big deal. I scheduled a day for each of my ELA teachers to bring their students and they come with them and help me supervise. In the mornings, during lunch and afterschool I limit the number of visitors so I can monitor by myself. I have a few spectacular, trustworthy student helpers getting me through. The students have been really excited. This is the first fair we have had in a few years. I'm looking forward to seeing how much we make this week.


  1. I finished off my book fair last week -- the last one I'll do in an elementary library as I'll be moving up to the middle school library (yay!) in a few months. Book fairs are a lot of work and quite exhausting, but I find them to be so rewarding.

  2. It has been three days and so far, so good. The kids have really enjoyed it.

  3. Love the look of the e-book And congrats on your Book Fair ...
    I have greatly enjoyed having Book Worm Central as my Virginia book fair vendor. They are efficient, courteous, and endlessly helpful. I have always been pleased with the book When I call, I speak to someone who really knows the business and can get me the answers I need. I know the staff’s names and they know mine, unlike some larger companies where I feel like I’m just another unknown customer. I highly recommend Book Worm Central as the best Virginia book fairs experience you will ever have in this area
