“The Saxe Book Fair is an exciting event!  The students look forward to it every year.  They love the visual displays and books organized in to categories and genres.  As a teacher, I enjoy browsing the new and hot books.  The parents have always been so generous by purchasing books to be added to my classroom library.  This is exciting for the whole classroom.  Last year. a parent contributed the book, I Am Malala.  This was an important gift!  I am looking forward to the up-coming book fair.  Thank you!”  ~Lisa Wrobel, Gr. 6 LA Teacher

“The Saxe Book Fair continues to create enthusiasm and excitement for students, and as an LA teacher, it’s amazing to see children be so engaged and show such genuine joy from the many wonderful titles on display. Additionally, the individuals who selflessly volunteer their time should be commended for this first class event, and we are so appreciative of your generosity and contributions. Thank you!”
