Start a GRAND tradition!
Get together students and their grandparents for a memorable event at your Book Fair. A Grand Event is an opportunity for grands – or aunts, uncles, and close family friends – to spend time with the kids they love, learn what interests them, and also shop the Book Fair.
These events increase Fair participation and help build home libraries; you can host a special breakfast or lunch, a grand show-and-tell, a grand time read-aloud, or anything you want. Many schools have said their Grand Events are often the biggest events of their Book Fair!
