yeah it was a great day for kids with money… for me it was not that great tbh lol
We had two book fairs a year. Mom and Dad always tried to make sure we had money for at least one of them.
^— same here! Usually we only got a few bucks, but that was good for a book, maybe two.
We had ours twice. Once in the fall, and then again in the spring. It was like Disney World to me. I was an ACE in the Accelerated Reading Program. One of the prizes for excelling in the program used to be a free ticket to Six Flags if you read a certain amount of hours by the end of the year. Our limit was 600 minutes.
I always read way more than that. It got to a point where my mom would catch me under the blanket with a flashlight reading my books.
oh my god, I used to go and I’d often wind up being the very last person there… it was quite pathetic, really.
