Follett Book Fairs was created with a single goal in mind; instill the love of reading in children.

Advantages of book fairs for families

Book fairs give students a chance to explore their individual reading interests and discover a new series or a favorite author. We rejoice when a child is excited to pick out a book that connects with them, whatever that story might be. All it takes is one special book.

Parent and Child Reading

Families should support book fairs as they…

  • Provide access to books students want to read and support independent reading.

  • Help your school raise money toward much-needed resources to enrich your children’s education.

  • Give you the opportunity to volunteer and be a part of the event.


With a solid foundation for reading at an early age, your child will be equipped to excel in the classroom, and as independent readers.

Encourage Reading at Home

  • Create a space for uninterrupted reading.

  • Keep books in an easy-to-reach space for your children.

  • Designate a family story time.
