Connecting Books and Readers


As the school year moves full speed ahead, students’ personalities are probably beginning to emerge very clearly—from the class clown and the social butterfly to the shy student and the daydreamer.

Just as students have unique personalities, so too is each unique as a reader, with wide ranging interests and abilities. Connecting each student with the book that’s just right for them can be a challenge, but every time you do, you help a student discover a love of reading that may last a lifetime.

At Scholastic, we believe that there’s a book that’s just right for every child. It is our privilege to support teachers in connecting students with the just-right book to delight, comfort, or inspire—changing lives in the process.

To all of the teachers, parents, and educators who work tirelessly to share the love of reading, thank you for everything that you do.



PS: As always, I would love to hear about the new challenges and triumphs you face in the classroom, as well as any questions or concerns. Please feel free to e-mail me directly at judy.newman@scholastic.com. I can’t wait to hear from you.

    There is nothing more delightful then the moment one of my kids finds a book that is just right for them. I see them settle (often on the floor of the library, between the stacks, or under a table) and begin a picture walk….

    The kids in the classroom came to school knowing which books they loved, and have delighted in bringing those books to our classroom to share them with the community. I am grateful to the parents in my classroom for enriching their children and creating a love for reading at home.
