The annual Escondido Book Fair, presented by Books Inc, kicks off Monday after school and will be open before and after school Tuesday through Friday.
In addition to a fantastic selection of books, curated by the knowledgable folks at Books Inc, here's what else you can look forward to at this year's Fair:
- Tournament of Books
It's March Madness... for books! Vote for your favorites in our "Sweet Sixteen" of popular chapter and picture books. We'll have new matchups each day as the winning books move on until, on Friday, we crown Escondido's champion. Harry Potter or Captain Underpants? Elephant & Piggie or the Stinky Cheese Man? You decide!
- Teacher Wish Lists
Our hard-working Escondido teachers have made lists of books they would love to have in their classrooms. Treat your class to a fantastic new book!
- Guess How Many Pages Contest
Check out our giant stack of books and make your guess for how many pages it contains. The closest guesses in each grade will win a $10 Book Fair gift certificate.
15% of all book sales go to Escondido, so treat yourself or a loved one to a book (or three) and help your school in the process!
And finally, we still need volunteers to run such an awesome book fair – sign up for shifts here:
