In today’s world of high-speed Internet, ipads, video games and devices, it’s refreshing to see students getting excited about books and reading.

Saint Jude School in Mountain Top recently held its annual fall book fair under the theme of the Enchanted Forest and the children did just that. The library was transformed into a forest of old complete with gnomes and fairies.

Students in grades preschool through eighth grade were given the opportunity to browse the fair with family and friends at the first-ever “grand event” held the Saturday before and then again with their classes during the week. From chapter books to picture books, the selection allowed students of all ages and interests to choose a read right up their alley.
