Summer Reading: Series Books Grow Readers
By Dr. Anne McGill-Franzen, professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN
Anne MGill-Franzen For at least 100 years, series books have enthralled young and older readers alike, hooking them on storylines and quirky characters that speak to them in a way they understand. A great way to keep kids on track with their reading goals over the summer is to introduce them to a popular series of books that will last throughout the summer break.

Series books provide pleasure to young readers. They fill a need within them to know the kinds of things that series characters do and say, and what happens to them. Keep Reading >>

Winning School Shares Ideas From the Top Fair
Union Elementary Media Specialist Heather Brown of Union Elementary School had a vision for her tiny rural school in Temple, Georgia: She wanted to see her school win first place in the Scholastic Book Fairs Fall 2011 National Elementary School Contest, and she intended to do everything within her power to make it happen.
