So the book fair started at my library today.
It is a gong show in slow motion,
as it lasts until Thursday.
We had grades 4-6 come in class by class and view.
During my time at this library, i've been able to observe first-hand the fervent desire within kids to capture some kind of attention from any adult within range.
Kid after kid would come up to the nearest adult, shake their paper listing book fair selections in the nearest adults' face, for the sole purpose of getting some kind of acknowledgement.
I as crowded as a person getting on an asian subway car.
And it was awesome.
