St. Timothy's Storyland Adventures 2014 Book Fair

Last year St. Timothy's Lutheran School won first place in the nation in the Scholastic Book Fair competition.

Well this year's Book Fair is under way and it is even more amazing than last year.  All are invited to attend tomorrow evening's Family Event which is open to the public!  This will be a book fair celebration like no other with astounding and HILARIOUSLY entertaining visits from the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat and Tinkerbell.

There will be Alice in Wonderland "drink me" beverages and other "Storybook Snacks" from the Bibbiti Bobbidi Boo Cafe, prizes, activities and of course... BOOKS!
If you are unable to attend this event which runs from 5:30 to 7:30PM on Thursday, 11/6 at St. Timothy's Lutheran School (5100 Camden Ave., San Jose, CA 95124), you might consider joining them on Friday, 11/7 from 9AM - 12 noon to enjoy Grandparent's Day at St. Timothy's.
Grandparents fly in from all around the country to attend this event and see the incredible bookfair which has become a centerpiece of the Grandparent's Day annual tradition.  You will witness grandparents snuggled with their grandchildren while they read stories to one another.  It is a beautiful thing to behold.
Either event is a wonderful opportunity to shine a light on the joy of reading, how printed books continue to thrive in our digital age, the lengths educators will go to reach their students and how this tiny Preschool - 5th grade school of 123 students has and continues to shine over every single other school in the nation with its Scholastic Book Fair productions!

Through the Scholastic "All for Books" program, St. Timothy's has adopted a local school, Painter Elementary in the Alum Rock District. All proceeds go towards new books for their very modest library.

Additionally, St. Tim's held its first annual movie night to kick-off the bookfair on Sunday, 11/2.  Families donated new books to the "Toys for Tots" program as their price of admission.

Giving back to the community has always been a central aspect of the St.Timothy's Book Fair.

St. Timothy's invites you to visit their Book Fair Extravaganza before it closes on Friday, 11/7 at 12 noon so you can experience the magic for yourself.
