About Scholastic

Scholastic’s mission is built on helping children learn to read and love to read. We believe that independent reading is a critical part of children’s learning and growth.

With support from teachers, parents and schools, children choose from Scholastic the books they want to read, and discover the pleasure and power of reading.

Finding the right book at the right time can light an emotional spark within children that motivates them to read more, understand more and read joyfully.

When that happens, the world opens. Everything becomes possible. www.scholastic.co.uk/worldofpossible

Create a literacy event for your school

Every Scholastic Book Fair gives a child the chance to see, fall in love with and buy the very best children’s books.

Spring 2011 - Children at Book Fair

Get the whole school buzzing about books

The ideal focus for literacy activities, a Scholastic Book Fair also gives children who don’t normally go to bookshops or libraries access to books.

Every child can find their perfect book

Each Book Fair offers over 200 titles to browse – from exclusives and classics to the latest bestsellers – with prices starting from only £2.99.

Helping you to stretch your budget

Every book sold at your Book Fair rewards you with a huge range of books and resources, freeing up your budget for other areas. We’ve given more than 22 million free books to schools.

Simple to run and highly rewarding

We pride ourselves on providing an efficient, hassle-free service. A dedicated co-ordinator makes sure that your Book Fair is tailored to your school’s individual needs.

“The new books bought with our Scholastic Rewards have been a breath of fresh air in the libraries, and tempted the students to borrow them.”
Camilla Johnson, Book Fair Organiser, Wickham Court School

Bringing you the best books

Our number one priority is to help you inspire children to read and to keep reading.

Choosing top books for children

We work with more than 50 publishers to pick the very best selection of books for children to read and enjoy. We also publish our own best-selling and award-winning books and authors, including Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, Horrible Histories, The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Expert library advice

Our schools range is full of books picked with your school or classroom library in mind, chosen by our in-house chartered librarian. It’s packed with ready-to-go selections, all at great prices.

Beyond the books

Children can share thoughts, compile wish lists or ask the book wizard for recommendations on our fun, safe children’s website packed with games, giveaways and extracts from favourite books.
