Let's Rejoice!
Award-winning author Andrea Davis Pinkney offers ways to help students celebrate Black History Month and the many colors of your community's rainbow.
Celebrate Diversity
Kiwanis Creates Havens for Families
Reading Oases - designated reading areas within schools where children and their families can gather - have become a haven among Title 1 students, many of whom lack access to books. Scholastic Book Fairs® and Kiwanis International partner to create family reading rooms as a community service.
Giving Kids Books
The Power of Just 1 Book
Four years ago, a book-loving Florida girl launched a nonprofit that has since put more than 200,000 books into the hands of needy children. And to think it all started with a single book drive.
Be Inspired
Book Fair Superstars
White Rock Elementary School students - 85 to 90 percent of whom are on free or reduced lunch - went from having no Book Fair for five years to scoring $12 in books each through a high-charged All for Books™ drive, thanks to a retired teacher and her Rotarian husband.
