Feedback from students and teachers who attend a Free Book Fair

Landry was over the moon about his Emergency vehicles book. His mom told me yesterday they have read it a million times already!!! Mission accomplished and that is only one child.

Lillie J. Jackson ECC Assistant Principal

The book fair went great! The kids really enjoyed coming down and receiving a free book! They were beyond excited and even wanted to take more than one book. We are extremely grateful for this, because it encourages our students to read!

It is a great way to get books to kids who do not have any, and get them reading! The staff was friendly and patient with the students.

LIFE School in LancasterTeacher

My students absolutely loved it! My Nancy Drew girls got their detective books, my dinosaur boys got their dinosaur books, and each child was absolutely thrilled to be in a room full of colorful books! Many have never been to a library, and our school doesn't have one, so it was the first time they had been in a room dedicated to just books. I think it was really good for them to see so many students and adults thrilled about books, and to realize that there are places they can go that are made just for reading!

Teacher

Awesome! Our students look forward to this event every year!

Garland Classical AcademyTeacher
