Helping Children Discover the Pleasure and Power of Reading

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.

Contact your Territory Manager to find out how Scholastic can help you open a world of possible.
