Mystery Book Fair

Mrs. MRM, here!  I hope you're enjoying the weekend with a good book or two.  We are cuddled up inside and staying out of the cold rain!  I spent the week running an elementary school book fair in a huge gymnasium, surrounded by books of every shape and size on every topic that might appeal to 5-12 year old children.  In other words, I had one of the sweetest volunteer opportunities ever.  As a book lover, it was tons of fun to spend my days watching kids' eyes get wide when they walked in the door and to hear them gasp with delight when they spotted a sought-after book.  It is also pretty special to watch a child get excited over a book in a culture that is inundated with video games and electronics.  Every year at book fair there are a few titles that fly off the shelves and create a little whirlwind of competition for the last copy.  (In case you were wondering, this year's titles were SistersSmile, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.)   There were also some interesting "kid mystery" titles, including:

 Anyway, the experience made me think about what my dream mystery-themed book fair would look like, and I thought I'd share some of my musings with you.  Here's a peek at what the shelves might contain (the L.L. Bartlett is free as of this posting!):

Please post in the comments and let me know what your mystery book fair might look like!

  1. Those too would be some of the books included in my dream mystery book fair. Would love to have one. For a book lover that was a great experience. I love when my 6 year old wants to read with me.
