Book Fair at St. Joseph School

The school had their annual book fair last week. I helped the other Moms on Tuesday and Wednesdays.  The school rely on volunteer workers to facilitate the school event s because there  is limited employees there so we  always make sure to make ourselves available for some events.  Anyway, I gave both of my kids $20 each to spend.  I can say that they both spent their money wisely.  They both have a change after book shopping.
My son bought the World War 2 book, I asked him why that choice and he said that he wants to learn more about his Grandpa's  experience during the WW2.
My daughter wanted to be independent so  she said that she would shop alone so I did not help her.  Being a Science nut, she bought  3D book.
She also bought this story book written by Jeri Watts and  a minecraft book.
Here's the set up at the library during the book fair.
I felt bad for this  one girl that I helped because she only got $5 and she wanted like $20 books.  I was tempted to help her by  paying the rest of the amount but  the librarian warned us that years ago, she used to do that for the kids who doesn't  have enough money but she stopped doing it because she got chewed up one time.  A parent came top her and complained that if they want their kids to buy a book, that they will send the money.

Now, I was stunned  that a parent would do that because the librarian  just wants to do a favor for the kids but her deed was misinterpreted by a parent, oh boy.  What is wrong with people these days.  It reminds me when my daughter  was in first grade, the teacher gave my daughter money because she  wanted my daughter to buy  what she likes in one event that my daughter did not plan to buy any.  I did not mind the teachers generosity at all, in fact I was grateful that she  did that because it made my daughter really happy.

for a project like this, the children must learn the value of money, by working for it.

I guess books are nice investment for kids so giving them budget for this is a good move.
