Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child, and of all the skills children learn, it’s the one parents can influence the most.
That fact will be stressed at Saucon Valley Elementary School’s Scholastic Book Fair Family Night March 1. The book fair is a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission: encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives.
This year’s theme is “Paws for Books—Come. Stay. Read A Good Tale!”
According to a news release about it, “Book Fair is a part of an incredible energy source for reading that brings to school a wonderful selection of fun, engaging and affordable books kids want to read. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.”
The book fair will be held Thursday, March 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the elementary school LGI.
Clifford and the Saucon Valley Panther will be available for pictures and autographs, so parents should bring their cameras for photos with the kids.
Cash, checks (made payable to SVSD) & credit cards including Discover, Visa, MasterCard and American Express as well as secured debit cards (with the MasterCard or Visa logos on them) are all accepted forms of payment.
