It was the perfect way to stuff Christmas stockings but avoid the holiday shopping crush. The week before Christmas, Community Hills Early Learning Center hosted the Scholastic Book Fair, where students brought money to shop for books. Talya Smith, seated center, teaches pre-kindergarten in Room 3 at CHELC and brought four students to the book fair. Ishmeal Winston, 4, hands money to Administrative Assistant Nelly Payen to purchase three books. School Director Cheryl Mack stands next to the bookshelves, which featured a wide range of reading material, from history and science books to baking and picture books and even a selection of popular children’s books translated into Spanish.
