The Scholastic Virtual Book Fair Begins Today!!
 
We’re having a Summer READ-A-PALOOZA virtual book fair! Our annual book fair starts today and will run online until July 10th. This is a great opportunity to discover new characters and books, or add to a collection or series you have already started. You can stock up on books to read all summer long and support our school at the same time. St Stephen of Hungary School receives 25% of our sales in Scholastic dollars to be used in our school and classroom libraries. Last year, our book fair raised almost $5,000 for our school!
 
Please use the link below to check out our virtual book fair. Orders will be delivered directly to your doorstep and you can take advantage of FREE shipping on book-only purchases over $25. Be sure to take a look at the attached list of favorite books, series and authors from some of our beloved teachers!
 
Enjoy your new books and have a wonderful summer of reading!

A Bad Case of Stripes - In a wonderfully illustrated book, a little girl is so concerned with everyone's opinion of her that she stops being herself and spontaneously becomes whatever anyone calls her, whether purple polka-dotted or as striped as the flag.

Mrs. Strain Recommends:
 
 
Wonder and Auggie & Me - August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school-until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you've ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie's just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, despite appearances?

Mrs. Miller & Ms. Santora Recommend:
 
 
The Lemonade War - Evan Treski is people-smart. He is good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart-but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. So when their lemonade war begins, there really is no telling who will win-and even more important, if their fight will ever end. Here is a clever blend of humor and math fun. As it captures the one-of-a-kind bond between brother and sister, this poignant novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone's intent.
 
Ages 9-12 | Grades 4-7
