CRESTVIEW — Walker Elementary School was full of activity Tuesday evening as students and their families browsed books, admired art and performed science experiments.

Combining the three subjects into one fair helps each student find something to enjoy, Principal Jeanine Kirkland said.

"We have to have a little variety," she said. "Our children are talented in different ways."

In the library, visitors had photos taken with Clifford, the Big Red Dog while selecting reading material at the Scholastic Books fair.

Fourth-grader Bret Castille, who said he enjoys reading, thoroughly perused every book-laden table before making his selections.

"I like to read 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books," Bret said, adding he has read most of author Jeff Kinney's books.
