Summer Reading Program

Get kids reading this summer!

 

Kids love to read when they can read for fun.* We’re here to help you motivate more kids to read this summer, with exciting book fairs packed with the best selection of books kids want to read and a fun reading challenge to appeal to their competitive side.

Check out the two videos on the right as John Schumacher, “Mr. Schu,” and Donalyn Miller, "The Book Whisperer,” make summer reading suggestions. Learn about the power and importance of summer reading, and take a look at some of the books featured on this season's book fairs.

Prepare your students for a summer of reading fun!

Host a Scholastic Summer Reading Book Fair at your school between April 1 and June 28 to give kids access to a wide and affordable selection of popular books they’ll have fun reading over the summer.

At a Scholastic Buy One, Get One FREE Book Fair, kids get to bring home double the books they want to read over the summer. Contact us for details!
