Everything You Need to Know About FBF

Why Choose Fantastic Book Fairs?

  • Generate fundraising for your PTO with competitive commission rates
  • Provide a local source for quality books and popular titles to families
  • We have E-WALLET for teachers (not for students yet)! Parents can now fund their teacher's classroom book fund easily and teachers can shop the fair instead of making lists.
  • FBF purchases from all the major publishers and we warehouse our inventory locally for easy restocks.
  • Straightforward website with cover art and book descriptions so ordering and discovering great books is easy.

Title Selection:

With years of experience in bookstores and book fairs, we curate a wide selection of books of all reading and interest levels.

  • Fiction - picture books, leveled readers, classics, and chapter books
  • Non-Fiction that kids really enjoy including graphic and large format discovery books
  • Fun titles - Mad Libs, joke books, Minecraft and more including plenty of graphic novels
  • Sidelines if requested (book lights, bookmarks, journals/locking diaries, pencils etc.)

Teacher/Library Wish Lists:

Teachers can now use parent-funded E-wallets to buy books for their classrooms. It's easier than wish lists and generates more commission income for your PTO.  


Book Fairs are a time-honored tradition in school fundraising and we’re thrilled to help support your schools while you in turn support two independent, local bookstores.
