As we get ready for our three Follett Book Fairs during the 2018-19 school years, we are also gathering exciting and creative ideas on how to make them an even bigger success at Van Meter.
So when I saw my friend Harvey Smith's tweet a few days ago, I was super excited!
As Harvey shared,
One of the cooler innovations of the Follett Book Fairs is gift cards where parents, grandparents, etc... can add money for students to buy books at the fair and even afterwards at Follett Book Fairs online.
When I visit the Follett Book Fairs site, I get so excited because it is a chance for us to find the next favorite books for our library.
The site is so fun to look through! I can't wait to share it with your students as they help us pick out the books for our library that we earn through our book fairs.
And as Harvey said, students can be given gift cards to use at the book fair or on the site too.
These gift cards can be refilled too.
I LOVE this idea because it puts books into the hands of our students and connects them to things that capture their reading spirit while challenging and exciting them too.
Thank you Follett. We all love what you are bringing to our children and families at school and in their homes too through the Follett Book Fairs.
