Holiday Book Fair

I can remember when the book fair arrived at my school when I was a child. It was always exciting to see the truck with Clifford the Big Red Dog on the side  as it backed to our school’s main entrance. Our school had a long, long, long driveway. Many of the children would watch from the playground fence to see if the truck would back up straight or take a wibbly wobbly path up to the front doors. Since I attended a school which did not have a library, our book fair was held in the hallway by the main office. I can remember my indecision…which novels should I buy? I would scour the flyer to plot out how I would spend my allowance and which selections would give me the most value.

Do you wait in anticipation for the book fair? Do you have a special memory of past Saint Stephen’s book fairs? What was your favorite purchase?
