Scholastic Parents: Raise a Reader

Announcing the STACKS Fantasy Books Festival

Help kids enjoy the magic of summer reading!
on June 20, 2014

A great fantasy book can take a child away to another world and engage her for hours. What better time than the summer to leave the real world behind and get lost in a magical adventure? So in honor of Harry Potter’s birthday on July 31, the STACKS, Scholastic’s website for kids aged 8-12, is inviting kids to join us for the STACKS Fantasy Books Festival, a month-long online event to share the fantasy books they love.

For the month of July, kids can visit the STACKS to pick up fantasy book recommendations; set reading goals; and participate in challenges, reading events, and activities -- culminating in a live 4-hour readathon/birthday celebration on July 31.

Send your child to the STACKS for the event schedule and sign-up information.
