NOTE: The 10 Fenway & Hattie & the Evil Bunny Gang books are gone! Huge thanks to all the teachers & librarians who took us up on this offer!
Have you read Donalyn Miller's post on the Nerdy Book Club blog today? She says:
Access to books increases children’s future prospects and has a significant influence on the level of education they will attain, their productivity, their health, and their quality of life. Buy the books and give them to the kids. It’s not complicated.
But Donalyn also points out that many kids from book desert communities or low-income families lack access to books over the summer. She poses the question: What can we do about it?
Inspired by Donalyn’s post, we’re committed to act.
We will send a free paperback book to 20 readers who face barriers to getting books in their hands outside of school. For this special offer, we are making available 10 copies of FENWAY AND HATTIE AND THE EVIL BUNNY GANG by Victoria J. Coe and 10 Scholastic BookFair copies of SMART COOKIE by Elly Swartz. (Please note that the Fenway and Hattie books don’t have to be read in order.)

This offer is good while supplies last.
If any of your students lack access to books outside of school,
here’s how you can take us up on our offer:
