As a media specialist, I had a love/hate relationship with the @Scholastic Book Fair. I loved the excitement leading up to the book fair. I loved opening those cases to see the beautiful new books. I took stacks home with me to read so I could tell the students and teachers about them the next day. I hated the crowds of parents and students every day before and after school. I hated doing the paperwork and having that much cash around. I loved implementing Teacher Wish Lists because teachers received almost every book they asked for from parents and students.
I could go on and on with this love hate relationship.
