TMA’s annual spring book fair is practically on campus—opening day is Monday, May 6, 2013. Excitement is building! Many of us are fondly remembering book fairs from the past. Here are photos from those past book fairs, along with quotes from current TMA students on some of their favorite things about our fairs.
“…the craziness of the first day!” Leila (Upper El)
“…that there are lots of books and that you can look through them and
actually buy them.” Kate (Upper El)
“…that there’s a lot of books.” Gatti (Lower El)
“…the Junior High room [at the Book Fair]!” Jesse (Junior High)
“…that I get to look at books I’ve never seen before.” Charlotte (Lower El)
“…the bookcase that has sports and science.” Elliott (Upper El)
“…that there’s a different variety of books; every year something new
comes up.” Brenden (Junior High)
“…the older chapter books like The Candymaker.” Sydney (Upper El)
“…finding all the books I want to read and I get to read them all
without returning them.” Bridget (Upper El)
“…the books with kits, like the Klutz kits.” Mia (Lower El)
“…that the decorations are so cool.” Sophia (Upper El)
“…how they have pencils and erasers we can purchase. Also, I like that
there are so many books, because I love reading books and so does my sister.” Chase (Lower El)
“…that some of the books from the fair go to the school. Then you can check them out for free.” Gavin (Upper El)
Lower Elementary student Dylan’s quote sums it up: “I like everything!”
