When I was in grade school, it was usually during the fall season when our school held a book fair. I was always pretty excited to see what kinds of books they would have.
I usually went with books about animals, since I really liked reading about animals back then. There were other books as well ranging from comic books to science books and even some novels and YA lit. My parents would give me the money to buy the books, bring them home, and read them.
As a parent, there are certain types of books you want your children to read. However, most of the time, children would just buy whatever is most interesting to them, often very different from parents' expectations. So here's a list of books parents' want their children to buy versus what children actually buy.
