The Children’s Book Festival is back this year at Orange Coast College. While I know many of you have already been to your school book fairs, or placed Scholastic Book orders, this is another great way to purchase books and encourage your child’s love of reading. My girls and I attended this event last year with grandma and had a blast. It was like a carnival but with books. We of course had to stop and get our faces painted, take a few Character pictures, learn the art of controlling marionettes (great for hand-eye coordination), grab a snack, and watch several performances, but the highlight of the festival really was picking out new books AND getting to meet the authors.
With over 135 exhibitors from authors to illustrators to literacy organizations, there is no shortage of material. You can check out the 2018 Festival Program HERE for more information on booth locations, performance times and special guests.
