Books featured in a Scholastic Book Fair are carefully selected by a committee of reputable edi- tors and educators.

Special attention is given to locate books that will appeal to the emergent, the experi- enced and the reluctant reader. Along with winners of presti- gious state and national awards, the Scholastic Book Fair will pre- sent hundreds of titles from over 100 publishers. Included will be how-to books, biographies, timeless classics and a variety of the newest titles in children's literature.
