The Scholastic Book Fair is Coming Back!

We are so excited to have the Scholastic Book Fair returning to preschool for the second time this year! It will be here just in time for you to get books for Valentine's Day, Easter, and spring birthdays! By surrounding children with books and reading to them on a daily basis, you are instilling a love of reading in them which is a priceless gift!



By supporting our book fair you are also helping us get new books and resources for our classrooms. Every year we have to retire many books that have been well-loved by our preschoolers, and we are able to replace those and get lots of new titles due to your overwhelming support of our book fair! Also, the teachers are so blessed by those of you who are able to buy books specifically for your child's teacher. The teachers will preview the book fair the day before it opens and choose a few titles that they would love to have for their classrooms. We will have a display set up with this information if you would like to grant one of their "wishes" from the fair!


The book fair will be open during regular preschool hours (8:45-12:15). We can't wait for you to see all of the great books that are coming!!
