Scholastic COVID-19 Permissions and Resources

Scholastic are particularly sensitive to the needs of children being able to reap the many benefits that literature brings them and to support their learning outside of the classroom. We have a range of resources to support home learning use by educators, administrators, and families listed below.

In addition to the above, following the reopening of schools and libraries and taking account of the need to protect the copyright in our books we can confirm that online readings of books published by Scholastic Limited (or our imprints such as Alison Green Books) are subject to the following conditions which apply throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Online readings by public libraries and bookshops

For any books published by one of our group companies such as Scholastic Australia (e.g Thelma the Unicorn, Pig the Pug) or Scholastic Inc. (e.g Goosebumps) you will need to seek permission directly from them. Our UK office is happy to forward any requests or answer any queries, please contact Pippa Watts for assistance.
