Scholastic Parents: Raise a Reader

Challenge Kids to a Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt

Challenge your kids to find their next book right from your home library.
on February 18, 2016

“There is nothing to read!” I hear that all the time and I am pretty sure we own five hundred books. Whether you own ten or ten thousand books this is a great game to get your kids looking through the books in your house and hopefully finding something great to read or re-read.

Print out this page, grab a clipboard, a pencil and let the hunt begin!

How do you get your children excited about the books already on your shelves? Share your tips on Scholastic Parents Facebook Page.
