The Walter Aseltine School in Rosetown, has been hosting their 24th Scholastic Book Fair this week. This book fair is very important to the school as well as the students, it is a fun experience that helps to promote reading not only at school, but home as well. The books are sold through Scholastic, and some of the proceeds will go back to the library to help replace old books, and purchase new ones.
Susan Munchinsky, expressed gratitude to all the volunteers that came out to help at this event, and especially to Shirley Man, who has helped volunteer at many book fairs over the years. Munchinsky also believes that reading is still a very important skill to teach children, as even in this time you need to know how to read, and this book fair helps to share the gift of reading throughout the school. This years book fair provided a huge selection of not only book but posters, and writing tools as well. With so many options of books, and many different genres of books, it provides something for everybody but it seemed with the elementary kids that Lego and Sports books were their favorite. With the changing times this might be one of the only book stores these kids will get to see and experience.
