MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- William Torrey couldn't wait to get his now book home to read while his mother Karen had it rung up at the last day of the Mamaroneck Avenue School's Book Fair Thursday.
William, 4, picked out "Olivia Says Good Night" from the Young Readers section in the school's All-Purpose Room where the Book Fair was held during the school day from Tuesday to Thursday. "I like the pictures," he said.
Valerie DeLucia, who has run the Book Fair with her partner in sales Lori Faicco for the last three years, said they were going to hold it in the hallway leading to the Mamaroneck Avenue entrance, but were able to secure the room at the last minute.
The spirited duo of elementary school mothers kept the Book Fair open late on the first night only. "It's a good night to come for parents who work," Faicco said.
For Torrey, Thursday was her second trip to the school Book Fair, stopping by Tuesday for her older son Nelson, 8. Similarly, Julie Poniros made her second trip Thursday for her older son. Her first trip was with her younger son Will, 7, who had put "The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot" on his wish list while touring the Book Fair with his class earlier in the day.
"They write the title of the book they want and put it on their wish list," said Poniros, who then was told which book he wanted and picked it up. "The Book Fair is awesome, it always is."
The Mamaroneck School District elementary schools hold a book fair in both the fall and the spring.
