The PTA led Book Fair is an opportunity for students to purchase books, meet guest authors and experience an overall excitement for reading. The Book Fair also serves as a fundraiser, garnering free materials and a percentage of the sales revenue for our school. A variety of volunteers are needed to set up, guide students and decorate.
Contact Book Fairs for more information and to find out about volunteer opportunities.
Happy Camper Book Fair: S’more Fun with Books!
This spring, it’s time to head to the great outdoors with the Happy Camper Book Fair: S’more Fun With Books! Pack up your gear and prepare your staff, students, and their parents for a wilderness adventure filled with exciting new books from Scholastic and other popular publishers.
Invite students to take a hike deep into the Book Fair forest by transforming your Fair entrance into a picturesque outdoor scene, complete with trees, mountains, and a night sky filled with stars. Decorate with camping signs, friendly woodland creatures, and even a faux campfire.
Then, bring the fun of the outdoors inside your Fair with exciting activities and adventures! Turn your students into Reading Rangers by making wearable ranger vests out of paper bags and binoculars out of paper tubes. Award badges or stickers to students who complete a student wish list, buy a book, or bring a loved one to a Book Fair event.
For the What Would You Do for Reading?® challenge, ask your principal to camp out overnight at school or become a human s’more! Ask students to vote for their favorite way to camp in an All for Books™ this-versus-that change war. Do they prefer to camp in tents, an RV, or hotel room?
Encourage your school to give a hoot about books! Anyone making a donation to the All for Books program can pull a lollipop or pencil from the All for Books Owl. Although we caution you about feeding the bears, we strongly recommend you feed your teachers. Set up a trail mix bar, bug juice, and everyone’s campfire favorite, s’mores and invite them to a Book Fair preview!
There is so much to see and do at the Happy Camper Book Fair. And that’s just for elementary schools! Be on the lookout for our middle school wilderness adventure theme—coming soon.
