Book choice is a primary factor for students becoming readers, and our library staff works diligently to provide a large selection of diverse books for all of our students. One of my favorite quotes is, “There are no reluctant readers, just kids who haven’t found their choice yet.” Providing a wide variety of literature is essential to any successful reading program. Personally, I prefer fantasy fiction and do not choose to read a lot of nonfiction or action/adventure literature. However, the reading trend for our high school boys is nonfiction, so we do a lot of research to find what they will like, even if it isn’t on my personal ‘to read’ list. We want to find the right book for the right student. The Book Fair provides a great avenue for us to purchase more books and build a better collection each year, thus providing that right fit for all students.
A special “Thank You!” to all who helped make this year’s Book Fair a huge success! We appreciate your desire to develop lifelong readers at Calvary Day School. If you didn’t get a chance to shop our Fair, you can still access our Online Fair. All proceeds will still benefit our school and purchasing of new books for our library collection.
