Grow your classroom library and get children excited about reading at the same time! Here's how:

Preview the Fair — Schedule time to preview the fair and create your Wish List of books you would like donated to your classroom library. If your Chairperson is using the Book Wish Cards (PDF From) on the Classroom Wish List display, you can mark your book selections directly on each card or use the Classroom Wish List Form (PDF From).

Display Your Wish List — Give your Chairperson your Wish List. Many Chairpersons set up a colorful Classroom Wish List display at the Fair to encourage donations. They will make sure that parents can find your Wish List easily. For parents who may not attend the fair, send home a Book Wish Gift Certificate (PDF) attached to your parent letter (RTF).

Share Your Wish List — Include your Wish List in your class newsletter, in special notes to parents, or on your classroom homepage.

Your Wishes Come True — Students and parents purchase the books found on your Wish List while shopping at the Book Fair. The donated books are delivered right to you, each with a special bookplate to show who made the donation.

Show your appreciation — With a special Thank-You Note (PDF) to students and families for their generous gifts.

Ask your Scholastic Book Fairs Chairperson for more information about this program.
