Reading Over the Summer Really Makes a Difference!
Research shows that kids who never crack a book during their summer break fall behind in reading while kids who do, maintain their reading skills and even excel.
How Can Your School Get Students to Read Over the Summer?
Engage your students in the Scholastic - Summer Reading Program! Our summer reading program will encourage kids to read for fun and help them avoid the learning loss that occurs when they traditionally “take a break from books.”
This program consists of three no-cost elements and has everything you need to promote reading all summer long!
A Summer Reading Book Fair
Celebrate the importance of literacy by hosting a second Book Fair during the school year. You’ll earn an additional 10% in product bonus to purchase even more books and resources for your school.
Hold a Buy One, Get One FREE event as your third Fair and ensure that every student has a well-stocked collection of books to read over the summer, PLUS encourage GREAT character development and compassion by touching the lives of less fortunate children in your community.
Scholastic Book Fairs will donate 50% of your net sales, in books, to designated children’s hospitals in or near your community, with the help of Children’s Miracle Network and Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies. For example, if your net sales are $5,000, we will donate $2,500 in books on your behalf!
