The WMS Book Fair Recap: Fall 2023

For three days, our Duane Street gym was transformed into a literary wonderland.

The Washington Market School's Annual Book Fair is a celebration of the joy of reading and a testament to the strong sense of community within our school.

Co-hosted by Merritt Bookstore, our 2023 Book Fair offered a diverse selection of books that catered to every child's interest and nurtured their love for reading. In collaboration with the fair, we invited featured authors to visit all of our classrooms to read their books aloud to our young learners. 

The event exemplified our spirit of community and collaboration, reminding us all the of the immeasurable value of literature in shaping young learners and nurturing their imagination.

Bring the magic of The Washington Market School Book Fair home with our video collection of Bedtime Stories, read by our dedicated faculty, staff and visiting authors!

Scavenger Hunt

The scavenger hunt was an unforgettable highlight for our young learners! This fun activity not only added an extra layer of excitement to the event, but also offered numerous developmental benefits. As the children eagerly searched through the bustling fair, they honed in on their observational, problem-solving and teamwork skills. The thrill of discovering the hidden books and images ignited their curiosity for reading and exploration.
