As the weather turns chilly and you cuddle up inside, what’s better than venturing into the wild with a good book as your guide?  Our R.E.A.D. Book Fair is an event that brings kids the books they want to read. You’ll receive a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level, and all purchases benefit our school! Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. Please come to our book fair and help shape your child’s reading habits.

Who is R.E.A.D?  

Read Early And Daily (R.E.A.D.) is an non-profit company in Arlington, VA.  R.E.A.D.’s mission is ensuring babies and young children have new, quality, culturally relevant books of their own that are mirrors and windows into their everyday lives and communities. The cool and unique way R.E.A.D. operates is that all the revenue earned from book sales goes directly back into its programming to get new, FREE books into the hands of the vulnerable young children they serve. So, when you buy a book at this book fair, 20% of the sales will return to Herndon Elementary PTA and the remaining revenue will be used to purchase new books for young children who need them the most.    PLUS R.E.A.D.’s books are curated for their cultural understanding and diverse and inclusive representation.
