Book Fairs, Fund Raising and Mindful Intervention
In 2007 we began offering Online and Onsite Book Fairs to schools and organizations as a means of fundraising. Understanding the market, we know it is one of the best ways to encourage reading and introduce kids to new literature. We call it "Mindful Intervention" because through our book fairs schools can offer a greater selection of culturally responsive reading choices for their students. Books written particularly for African American youth with positive images and stories about their culture and history will be a huge benefit and will provide a boost towards narrowing the academic achievement gap. But equally important, other students and the community also benefit as we seek to increase literacy.
With this in mind, we are ready to work with you as an educational resource and fund raising partner to provide all children with the best in Black Children and Multi-Cultural Children’s literature. We stock a offer a diverse selection of top quality books. Our books are reviewed and selected based on content, character development, theme, illustrations, reading level and price. Our book categories include: fiction, non-fiction, poetry and biographies etc. and they represent some of the best African American authors and illustrators. We also carry books written by and for people of various other ethnic groups including: African, Caribbean, Native American, Asian, Middle East and Spanish and Bi-Lingual cultures.
Our book collections include great classics, best sellers and independent published titles. Most have been selected as part of the Core Curriculum used nationwide in most school districts. We also carry Africentric Curriculum, and Ethnic Games, Puzzles, Music CD’s and DVD’s. Most of our books we sell are new and shipped direct from the publisher. Some are overstocks and in excellent condition. However, we are very selective and we pass the savings directly to our customers. Only the best books will be sold at our book fairs. Give us a call and schedule your book fair today.
