Our Mission

To promote the importance and value of reading for success in school and in life, and to give you the tools and ideas for making reading easier, more fun and more accessible to the kids in your life – and for all children, all around the world.

The cornerstone of the campaign is the Reading Bill of Rights - eight beliefs that inform Scholastic's commitment to increasing literacy in the 21st century. These beliefs affirm every child's right to read in today's world - from access to books and great stories to the ability to analyze, interpret and understand information in the digital age.

The Reading Bill of Rights (A Child’s Right to Read)

Today we live in a world full of digital information. Yet reading has never been more important, for we know that for young people the ability to read is the door opener to the 21st century: to hold a job, to understand their world, and to know themselves. That is why we are asking you to join our Global Literacy Call to Action: We call this campaign: “Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life.” We are asking parents, teachers, school and business leaders, and the general public to support their children’s right to read for a better life in the digital world of the 21st century.
