There’s no doubt that the Scholastic Book Fair was one of the best parts about being a kid, and it’s totally understandable why so many people miss it. Here are some of the best tweets that perfectly capture the nostalgia:

I think my main criticism of adulthood is there are no surprise Scholastic Book Fairs. Nothing brightens a day like a surprise book fair.

Imagine how frustrated the cashiers at scholastic book fairs are. those kids don’t understand tax. their mom gave them $20 and said “books only”. they think they can get a book that’s $16.99 and an eraser that’s $2.99. “yeah right, idiot” the cashier has to say (by law)

In third grade I won a free poster from the scholastic book fair and there was a Green Day one that terrified me but my crush said Green Day was his favorite band so I got it & kept it above my bed for 4 years…mason if you’re out there I really think we could’ve had something
