This session will describe how to set-up a free book distribution program like the Annual Book Fair, what kinds of books to include, and ways to connect children's preferences to in-school reading practices. Ways to evaluate and improve schools' book distribution programs will be discussed along with the cost/benefits of these programs compared to summer school and other interventions. Implications for classroom teachers, parents, administrators, and policy makers will be discussed.
