In addition to the book fairs, there were Scholastic book order forms that the teacher would hand out to the whole class. They were catalogs of books that were very colorful and fun to read through, and we could take them home and pick out books to buy with our families. I remember that choosing the books I wanted and filling in the order sheet made me feel really grown up! When we were done, we would hand our forms and our money to the teacher, which they would give to Scholastic. A few weeks later, our new books would come in the mail and we would get to take them home! This was always a very exciting day, and I remember my friends and I enthusiastically showing each other the books we picked out.
