Should you take your kids to the Book Fair? Given the number of people at the Book Fair (it can get crowded during weekends and later in the day), it may be more ideal to take older kids (those 7 years old and above). They will have the stamina for it and you lessen the chances of kids getting lost. If you are bent on bringing your younger kids, those aged 6 and below, that’s possible too but make sure that an adult is assigned to watch the kid full-time. Also, be prepared that your kid may want to go home after a few hours. If it’s not too much trouble for you as a parent, you might even want to take two trips: one with the kids and one for you.

Head on to the Book Fair this August and start your Christmas shopping early. Books are one of the best gifts you can give your family and friends. Give the gift of reading and knowledge.
