Book Fair Changes for Scholastic Book Clubs

With schools trying to scramble to educate kids in new and unusual ways, don’t let it squash one of the best things of the year:  Scholastic Book Fair!

As a kid, the Scholastic Book Fair was always one of the best days of the year.  I would have a few dollars in my pocket that would be magically transformed into a stack of Scholastic books. 

I saw the same thing with my own boys.  And by that time, it wasn’t just books!  Scholastic books have more than just books these days with all sorts of educational items that sparked their imagination.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could still go through your Scholastic book order and choose some new books for your kids?

Usually your child’s teacher will send home information about a Class Code. If you have not received that information, you can go to the Scholastic Book Clubs website and choose the “Connect to Teacher” option to obtain that Class Code.

If you do not want to deal with a Class Code, you can shop on the Scholastic parent’s site.
