SI Online Book Fair - Step By Step instructions to purchase books
Thu, Apr 1 3:28pm

Dear Escondido Parents,

Our online Spanish Book Fair is currently underway until Monday, April 5th! 

I have received several questions about the process of purchasing books at Lectorum and how/when to enter the “Escondido” code, so here is some additional information to hopefully simplify the process for you.  

In addition, I’m attaching the Lectorum Book Fair Bestseller List with a link to each book on the list - there are many great books for $10 or under, and the majority have been in Nina's recommendations through the years.

 To purchase books, there are two options: 

Option #1 

  1. Go directly to Lectorum.com
  2. Select books to purchase and add to your cart
  3. Go to checkout and create your account
  4. At checkout, confirm your shipping address (even though this will show your home address).  Follow the instruction as though the books will be shipped to your home. 
  5. On the next screen, you should be able to enter our discount code “Escondido” in the box on the right labeled “Redeem a Gift Certificate or Coupon”
  6. Select Apply. You should now see a credit for all shipping costs.

Option #2 - If you want to shop from the brochure of teacher recommendations or Lectorum Book Fair Bestseller List

  1. Download the attached brochure "Escondido Book Fair Brochure V2.pdf" and/or “Lectorum Book Fair Bestsellers.pdf”
  2. Follow the instructions on the first page of the brochure (including creating your account)
  3. At checkout, confirm your shipping address (even though this will show your home address).  Follow the instruction as though the books will be shipped to your home. 
  4. On the next screen, you should be able to enter our discount code “Escondido” in the box on the right labeled “Redeem a Gift Certificate or Coupon”
  5. Select Apply. You should now see a credit for all shipping costs
  6. If you plan to buy a book to donate to your child's classroom from the Wish List, please check and update the sign-up sheet in Konstella with your donation so that other parents know which books have already been purchased: https://www.konstella.com/app/school/55aed367e4b06e5080d5d82b/signups/605c9f3f105c0243ef49a36e

All books will be shipped to Escondido and delivered to your kids’ classrooms soon after Spring Break.

Parents, teachers, and the SI community will get 20% discounts off retail along with free shipping, and 5% of the total sales will be donated to the Escondido PTA.

Our book provider, Lectorum, has a huge selection of high-quality Spanish books, including native Spanish books and Spanish translations of popular English books. They only serve schools and libraries, so this is a fantastic opportunity for parents and other members of the SI community to get access to this wonderful resource -- but only until April 5th!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via Konstella or at loretoponcedeleon@yahoo.com

Thank you,
