A Book Fair is a fun, pop-up event held at your child’s school. A celebration of reading, Book Fairs last about a week and are a great opportunity for you to browse books with your child. With over 200 of the newest and the best children’s books available – each chosen by Scholastic’s expert book buyers – there will be something to catch the eye of even the most reluctant reader. You’ll find a wide range of books suitable for your child’s age-range and the school can earn free books for every book that’s bought.
