It's Book Fair Time!

My school is having conferences, so that means book fair! This year, we decided not to move it out into the hallway because it looked so nice in the library.

Book fair means long days-- I won't get home until 8:30 tonight, so I get very little reading done.

Friday we don't have school, but I will taking teenaged daughter to the University of Cincinnati for a college visit.

Have decided to go back to original code names for my resident readers (aka children)-- the teenaged daughter started out life as Hortense; the surly 9th grade boy was Norbert; and 7th grade Picky Reader was Ermintrude. Those were the names that were bandied about before they were born, so when their real names were revealed, everyone was greatly relieved and didn't complain!


  1. Hi, Ms. Yingling! It's A. E. Cannon here. I want you to know that I have been spreading the word here among parents and librarians about your fabulous reading blog. It's such a wonderful resource!

    Best wishes always.

  2. Book fair + conferences is completely genius. I am definitely mention this to our librarian for next year! So many people are at the school anyway.

    Hope the college visit goes well too!

  3. Good luck with your book fair Karen! I just finished ours at my son's elementary school, and will do it again during conference week in the spring. I'm really glad that I am not the person at Scholastic who has to keep track of all of that inventory coming and going!

  4. Best of luck with your daughter's college visit! Hope it went well.
