We’ve shared some of our big changes for the coming year—including our new name, Scholastic Reading Club, and that this year we’ll offer grade level flyers—but we haven’t yet shared what you’ll be seeing at home and at school!
For the youngest book lovers (and readers-in-training), we’re pleased to offer a range of board books and picture books starring characters like Llama Llama and Pete the Cat in our Preschool, Kindergarten, and Early Grades flyers.
As they become independent and more fluent readers, we know that it’s important for children in early elementary school to have the opportunity to choose their own books. With that in mind, the 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade, and Primary Grades flyers give students the chance to choose books featuring familiar faces like Fly Guy, Jack and Annie, and Fancy Nancy, and great series like The Notebook of Doom and Who Would Win?
In upper elementary school we know how much book ownership and sharing great books with friends can mean to readers. Is there anything better than kids talking about their favorite books over lunch? The 4th Grade, 5th Grade, and Middle School flyers include something for everyone, from action-adventure to realistic fiction to fascinating and thrilling nonfiction kids won’t want to miss!
And we haven’t forgotten our teen readers! The Teens flyer and Book Beat online give tween and teen readers a wide range of choices, from classics like The Outsiders and To Kill a Mockingbird to the horrifically awesome Alice in Zombieland.
Welcome back to the 2013–14 school year, and happy fall reading!
