How to Be a Book Fair Parent

Let’s make the most of your kid’s favourite day so they leave the Book Fair as bolder, prouder, and stronger individuals!

Tackle These To-Dos

Explore the books your child can’t wait to read!

  • Keep an eye out for the highlights flyers from your school to see our selection of featured books. Circle the titles or make a wish list
  • Watch book trailers together! The characters in their books inspire children and send their imaginations wandering. Say hello to these lovable friends!
  • Save the date! Mark down when the big days are on your calendar

Your support counts!

  • Explore Fair with your child and support them in their reading choices
  • Check out the Classroom Wish List displays at the Fair to see what books you can donate to your child’s classroom
  • Enter your child into the Book Fair Family Night Draw for a chance to win $25 in free books, plus $25 for their classroom teacher! (Only at participating schools)

Keep the reading momentum going!

  • Ask your school how you can be a volunteer at the next Fair
  • Share photos of the Fair with your school community on social media! Use the hashtag #ScholasticBookFairsCanada for a chance to be featured on our pages
  • Check with your school about their Scholastic Book Clubs program for new books year-round!

Every Kid Deserves the Book Fair

Our goal is to help get more books to more kids and make the Book Fair more accessible to all families. This year, you’ll find newly marked $3 and $5 books on every shelf, marked with a red sticker on the cover. These books are spread throughout the Fair to give every student the opportunity to choose the book they want to read.

Ask your school’s Chairperson to find the value books at your school’s Fair.
