  • A Family Event!

    Help raise readers by holding a Family Event!

    Celebrate reading and get parents actively involved in their childs literacy. Invite family and friends to an event. Attendance and sales will increase while family and friends help kids choose books and build their home libraries together. Try some of these great ideas:

    Before schoolinvite family and friends to attend a Monster Art Exhibition. Increase attendance by showing student artwork and craft projects. Or invite families for a simple breakfast, then some shopping at the Fair.

    During schoolGet family and friends together with kids for a Lunch with a Loved One or a BLT (Books and Lunch Together) event. Plan Monster Craft Stations during the day. Kids can make themed bookmarks while parents shop.

    After schoolMake Your Own Monster Night. Kids bring their own homemade monster made out of recycled materials and then vote on their favourites. Or host a Monster Movie Night featuring a friendly monster movie, popcorn and shopping at the Fair.

    Handy Tips

    Increase attendance with photo ops featuring/using monster props.

    Families will look forward to photo

    sessions.

    Include a prize rae for kids who bring a parent with

    them.

    Use the directional

    arrows in your promotional kit to

    direct guests to the Fair.

    Schedule a stand-alone

    grandparents event. Gives grandparents a chance to spend

    time with their grandchildren and learn more about

    what interests them.

    Promote your event with

    emails, flyers and sandwich boards in front of the school.
