I love the book fair. I know that it's a ton of work for the volunteers, and it always comes at a busy time, and the library routine is put on hold for the week, but the JOY on the faces of the shoppers is priceless. I love watching the kids find books that they can't wait to read. The ones with money in their pockets work so hard to build their book piles within their budgets. The ones without money are so focused on making a "wish list" to share with parents at home. The ones shopping with parents have the greatest conversations surrounding books. This week, we're back to our regular routine, but there is still much talk about the book fair and the books that are being read and loved.
