Overview

Since 1948, Scholastic Book Clubs has inspired kids to love reading by providing them with the easiest and most affordable ways to get the books they love. 

In over 60 years, we’ve sold more than 6 billion books to generations of readers.

This year, we changed our name from Book Clubs to Scholastic Reading Club. We wanted to reflect the heart of what we do – giving children every opportunity, both inside and outside the classroom, to become better readers and lead better lives.

Kids read more when they choose their own books, so our flyers and online offerings are filled with a wide range of grade-appropriate books handpicked by our editors to ensure a good fit.

We believe that every child deserves a good book, and with prices starting at just $1, kids from all income levels in every area of the country have an opportunity to create a home library of quality children’s books.

Scholastic Reading Club also helps teachers to earn free books and classroom supplies through the Bonus Points rewards program.

STORIA, the eReading app designed by Scholastic to excite kids through digital reading in the classroom and the home, allows teachers and parents to purchase many Scholastic Reading Club titles as ebooks each month.

What People Are Saying

"In the past, they've helped get books into homes for families who can't/won't use libraries. In the classroom, they are great motivators. Having new books does something magical to students... to be the first one to have a clean, new book is very motivating." 
         – Christi F., 3rd Grade Teacher, Indiana

"You should see the excitement when the box arrives in my classroom from Scholastic. The kids are so excited! I know that they then go home with their new books and bug the adults at home to read to them or to listen to the child read it."
         – Christine M., Kindergarten Teacher, Indiana

"Scholastic Book Clubs is a great way to get students fired up with reading! It’s easy to accumulate points and build your very own classroom library! My students and I love ordering from scholastic and I just recently tried the online parent ordering. With scholastic everything is easy and affordable!!!" 
         – Oscar M., 4th Grade Teacher, Texas

ClassroomsCare Online Press Kit

Scholastic Book Clubs ClassroomsCare has donated over 10 million books to kids in need since 2001. Kids who participate in ClassroomsCare learn the value of giving. They develop reading skills through activities that promote literacy. And they are empowered by the knowledge that their actions can impact the world in positive ways.
