Bestselling author Eric Litwin created a fun song called “The Fantastic Scholastic Book Parade” to turn up excitement and interest in books, reading, and the book fair. Since many schools already hold book character parades to celebrate reading, Scholastic challenged them to have their best book parade yet! Schools were asked to film or photograph the parades and create a short video to share on social media. View official rules.

Congratulations to the winning schools and thanks to everyone who participated!
