The 3rd Bookfair of Magnolia
On 5th of March, on the corner of Jiangyin Road, the old house was full of coffee’s smell. New books, old books, Chinese books, English and French books were put in the classroom. The table was put on French- style tablecloth. The feeling of 10℃ sunshine was like touching rice. Two magnolia trees were silent and standing there, which were like 2 senior people.
Parents brought snacks and mix the smell of coffee, which made this old house very delicate.
The 3rd bookfair of Magnolia was waiting for people who are book lovers. New books or old books, no limitation of language and all depend on what you like. It was like a festival, children looked for giant and princes, friends and treasure in books.
Teacher prepared story of spring. During the warm and cozy brunch time, in Yoga classroom with cushions, we welcomed beautiful grandma of spring in Chinese, English and French. When tired, you can make a tool of bubble maker on 3rd floor, which matched spring very well.
We also invited illustrator and writer Zhu Chengliang of Tuanyuan to sign his books. Mr.Zhu also has a children’s heart. He took lot of pictures of bookfair and cute kids who were reading books.
