Remember book fairs? What an exhilarating day in every kid’s life. Brightly colored books, filled with captivating stories and beautiful illustrations displayed around the room—not to mention any toys or candy for sale!

However you or your students choose to read is fine by us. . . just as long as you read. So pick up that book, or Kindle, and enjoy!
