Nowata’s Book Fair was finally here once again to excite kids about reading. The book fair is one of the many things Nowata Elementary does to inspire kids to read for pleasure.
“Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are,” said Principal Tana Haas.
The book fair was being held at the elementary’s library and was open from February 29-March 4. The fair didn’t only have books but bookmarks, stickers, toys, journals, game guides, pens, pencils, and much more. Students were allowed to shop from 8:15 a.m to 3:00 p.m. To add to the fun, there was a jar of jelly beans that everyone had a chance to guess at. The winners of the Jellybean Contest was fourth grader, Piper Seely and Deakon Freeman in K4.
These are only a handful of books compared to what was available at Nowata’s Book Fair.
To make sure that every parent was able to participate in their child’s reading, the kids made a list, where the child would fill out and bring home to their parent or guardian to show them the books they would want. The list contained four things the child wanted and how much the items cost.
If you happened to miss the book fair or wasn’t able to attend in person, the school will be having an online book fair at scholastic.com/fair. The online book fair will be open from February 25 to March 10.
