Why Host a Fair

Reasons to host a Book Fair at your school

Carnival believes that a book fair should be more than a book fair. It should also support the school's drive for literacy and core education values. Our STEAM-focused fairs have attracted a lot of praise and attention for supporting school's learning and curriculum-based goals in this area.
