The Book Fair will run Monday, June 23rd to Friday, June 27th from 6am to 6pm. Just come to The Child Center located at 1625 Center St. NE in Salem. For more information call Karen at 503.585.6511.
Each year Scholastic Book Fairs®, in partnership with schools across the country, hosts more than 127,000 book-sale events that give more than 35 million students and their families’ access to thousands of affordable and educational products, helping foster a lifelong love of reading.
Willson House Child Development Center was founded with the belief that intergenerational care benefits both children and seniors. Seniors present more natural familial type behaviors with the children and can serve as nurturers, mentors, historians, and storytellers.
One study reported in Childhood Education showed that children in intergenerational programs achieved higher personal and social development and reading scores than children in regular programs.
Seniors living at Willson House interact and read to the children at the Child Development Center each week. Help us raise money to buy more books for them to read together by coming to the Book Fair and stocking up NOW for your Christmas gift giving. You’ll find lots of books for your own summer reading enjoyment as well. See you this Saturday from 10-2pm and again next week at the Book Fair!
