Parkside Book Fair

December 4 - 9, 2018
Books of Wonder

217 West 84th Street, Manhattan

The Book Fair planned by Parkside’s Parent Association is a unique chance for students to shop for exciting new books, and for friends and family to support Parkside while doing some holiday shopping and promoting the importance of reading.

Students will visit Books of Wonder’s Upper West Side location on December 4 to shop, but parents, family and friends can shop anytime Tuesday, December 4 through Sunday, December 9.


  • IN STORE: Buy books for yourself, and browse the Parkside Wish List books to purchase books to donate back to our classrooms and therapists. Mention “PARKSIDE” at the register at check-out and 20% will benefit or school.

  • ONLINE: Shop at and enter Coupon Code PARKSIDE at check-out. If you wish to contribute towards the Parkside Wish List books for classrooms and therapists, simply purchase a gift card in any denomination and the gift card will automatically be used to purchase Wish List books for the school. Use the comments section to list your class, or any specific requests regarding your Wish List purchase.


Each year during the Book Fair, the Parkside community comes together to purchase new books for Parkside’s library, classrooms and therapists. Each room or specialty provides a “wish list” of the titles they would like to add to their collection, and parents, friends and family purchase books during the fair that are donated back to the school.

Wish List books will be on display for purchase at Books of Wonder from December 4-9. They will also be available for purchase at Parkside during the Visitor Assemblies for Groups A and B on Friday, December 7 and Friday, December 14.


If you are planning to purchase a gift card online instead of shopping for Wish List books in person, review the list of titles requested by each class at the link above. The PA will do its best to use your gift card donation to purchase books for your child’s class and honor any specific instructions you provide in the check-out comments online.
