Growing Independent Readers
Summer is growing season - for vegetable and flower gardens, for family memories, and for readers. Here are some ways to help children blossom as independent readers.
Grow Readers
Become Book-Savvy with Podcasts
Do you want to know what's in your Fair, but you don't have time to read every book? Podcasts - brief audio clips about titles available at Book Fairs - educate adults so they can help students make informed decisions about books.
Dive Deep
Want Books Monthly? Join the Club!
Can't wait for your next Fair? The Scholastic Reading Club® allows teachers and parents to find relevant, affordable titles monthly - and that's great news as summer approaches.
