The Scholastic Reading Club, once known as the Scholastic Book Club, offers a way for parents and teachers to purchase books for the classroom that the students themselves choose. Purchases also lead to reward points for free classroom books.
Students receive flyers at school to take home. They and their parents choose which books to order and return order forms and money to the teacher. The teacher places online orders for the books, which are then shipped to the classroom for all the children to share. Bonus points are earned based on orders and can be used to redeem free books and materials. The goal of the program is to excite children about reading by empowering them to select books they want to read.
