Some may consider reading to be a solitary and sedentary activity. Well, Aspen Elementary School will introduce a new perspective toward reading starting Thursday.
This year’s Scholastic Book Fair not only brings books and different activities to the whole family, it also offers the chance to take literary travels around the world.
The theme for this year’s book fair, Aspen Librarian Kristine Bennett said, is “Read Around the World.”
She explained, “Books take us to new worlds whether it is a geographically new location or an imaginary location. They return us to our world with new ideas and attitudes.”
The fair opens from 3:15-4:15 p.m. Thursday at the school’s library.
The fair continues from 8-8:30 p.m. Friday. Additionally, there will be a pizza/reading night from 3:15-7 p.m. Friday.
The fair will be held from 8-8:30 a.m. and then again from 3:15-4:15 p.m. Monday. Wednesday, the fair will be open from 8-8:30 a.m. and there will be a family picnic from noon-2 p.m.
The final day of the fair will be Sept. 24. The fair will be held from 8-8:30 a.m.
In addition to book sales, Bennett said students can try their luck at guessing how many tortilla chips are in a container. The winner will receive a book gift certificate.
