Characters of all shapes and sizes were welcomed into Panther Run Elementary School’s “Kingdom Of Characters,” the school’s free book fair sponsored by the Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County.
Recently held in the Panther Run media center, each student was encouraged to dress like a literary character, and then entered the “kingdom” to select their free book from the fair.
Additionally, each class was able to paint and design a pumpkin to represent characters in the many books shared in the library every day.
Characters included Clifford, the Rainbow Fish, Captain Underpants, Nemo, Pete the Cat and even the Very Hungry Caterpillar. There was also an Abe Lincoln pumpkin to represent the biography section of the library, and a pumpkin painted like a globe to represent the nonfiction section.
All the “characters” had quite an amazing time, and the school would like to thank all of the parents who helped make it happen.
