Another successful Book Fair is coming to a close. It was so wonderful to see how excited the kids were to visit the book fair and choose books for their personal libraries. 

I was genuinely flattered when students asked me for book recommendations, which was every time I was at the book fair! For me, personally, it's one thing to ask for a book recommendation at the library and a whole other thing to ask for a recommendation when you're buying a book. The students are trusting me with their limited monetary resources to choose a book that's right for them (the "risk" isn't as great when you can check out a book for free at the library). And it's certainly a boost to my ego when teachers add books to their wish list solely because they saw I recommended the book. :)

Students (and parents) were instrumental in raising $468 for the Manhattan Beach Roundhouse during Family Game Night on Wednesday. I hosted a library catalog scavenger hunt that night and over 20 students participated.

I'd also like to extend a huge thank you to the PTSA for donating the books that were on the library wish list! New books get me so excited -- to read and to share with the students! First up: Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill.

Instead of coming to the library, classes will be previewing the Book Fair this week. Please see the schedule below if you'd like to volunteer during that time or if you'd like to pop in to help your child make a purchase.

If you are comfortable with your child bringing money to school, please send your child to school with some cash to spend during their visit to the Book Fair. If you prefer that your child not bring money to school, s/he will create a wish list so you can shop together later. Please speak to your child's teacher directly to find out what her policy is about bringing money to school (for example, kindergarteners will not be bringing money to school).

One of Ms. Yukari's favorite events of the year is fast approaching. The annual Robinson Book Fair will be open during the week of December 3 (parent teacher conference week) from 8am to 2pm. Family Fun Night is Wednesday, December 5, from 5pm to 7pm. We have a new vendor this year, Book Safari. 

The Book Fair theme is DIVE INTO READING!
