This Year’s Book Fair Drew Crowds

14 May 2014

“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” - Dr Seuss

  • Book Fair 2014

Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday saw the ground floor of the primary school buzzing with parents and children excitedly talking about books. Children were sharing stories with parents and classes were browsing the wide selection, discussing their favourite authors. Our annual book fair was enthusiastically greeted by all.

We extended our opening hours this year, so that our pupils were more easily able to attend with their parents. This meant that children and adults were able to enjoy the pleasure of choosing books and reading together. Reading is so important for children - the more they read, the better they become at reading and the more they love it.  Reading with your child fosters a love of books and provides high quality family time. It creates opportunities for children to express their ideas and for parents to show their willingness to listen.

It can be difficult to obtain high quality children’s books in English in Shanghai, but fortunately we have fostered a good relationship with two suppliers. This year’s book fair was a resounding success and thanks to everyone’s support we received four large boxes of books as a donation to the school library.
