PARENTS' GUIDE TO SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS
Q: What is a Scholastic Book Club?
A: Simply put, a Scholastic Book Club is the easiest, most reliable way to get your child excited about reading! There is a Book Club for every grade level from preschool through high school. Each club is exclusively school-based, and is run by a classroom teacher. Each month in the Scholastic Book Club student flyer, your child will find a terrific selection of new and noteworthy fiction, classics, award-winning titles, perennial favourites, reference books, and more.
Book Clubs offer a convenient way to purchase the best books at huge discounts. Prices are as low as $1.99. Plus, if you're ever dissatisfied with an item, you can return it for a full refund.
Also, by participating in Scholastic Book Clubs, your child's teacher can earn FREE teaching materials. Every order you or your child places helps earn Bonus Coupons that your child's teacher can use to choose FREE classroom resources from the Book Clubs Reward Catalogue, Classroom Essentials Catalogue or to choose FREE books for the classroom from each month's Book Club.
Scholastic Canada is your partner in helping your child fall in love with books and become a great reader. That's why we're here. Happy Reading!
Q: How Does a Scholastic Book Club Work?
A: Scholastic Book Clubs are licensed to run exclusively through the school. Some parents get involved by helping their child's teacher run the Book Club each month.
Q: How does Scholastic choose which products to offer in the Book Clubs?
A: Our team of editors pores through literally thousands of books published for children every year and selects high quality, grade-level appropriate titles for each Book Club.
RUNNING A BOOK CLUB
Q: I am homeschooling my children/I am a daycare teacher. Can I run a Scholastic Book Club?
A: Yes! We will require a signed letter of verification from your School Board or registered Home School Association stating that you are homeschooling your children, or a copy of your daycare license. School market restrictions apply to many of the books we offer, which means we cannot accept orders from home addresses except from a legal home school or daycare (which qualify as school markets).
Please remember to include the number of children, and their ages, and kindly forward your letter to:
