Book Fairs

Revised May, 2021

Scholastic Book Fairs are literacy events that bring the best in children’s literature right to your school. We are proud to partner with families and educators to empower kids with the opportunity to choose what they want to read. The joyful experience of a Book Fair inspires independent reading, helping kids to become lifelong learners.

In addition to offering the newest books, most popular characters and exciting series, each Book Fair puts essential resources back into the school, supporting literacy initiatives and enhancing school and classroom libraries.

Both in-school and Virtual Book Fair options are available to support in-person, remote, and hybrid learning models.
