Your Class Can Make a Difference for Children across Canada just by Reading!

Teachers across Canada! We are challenging classrooms to help us make a difference in the lives of children and families in our communities by tracking and reading 100 books between February and April. When students in your class read 100 books, we will donate up to 100,000 books to kids who need them the most.

Help us ensure that all children across Canada have the chance to build a lifelong love of reading by registering now and inspiring your students to keep reading!

Don’t forget to track your progress and share updates with us on Instagram and Facebook or by email.

Partnering With Dav Pilkey's Do Good Campaign

“I want to encourage all of you to keep reading–especially if you’re having challenges. Find things that you’re interested in and look for things you love, because that’s what made the difference for me.”

In 2019, Scholastic launched the Dog Man "Do Good” campaign. Inspired by the characters and themes in Dav Pilkey’s worldwide bestselling graphic novel series, the initiative encourages readers of all ages to give back, in any way they can, and make a positive impact in their communities.

Throughout the pandemic, Dav created a series of “Learn at Home” videos to provide comfort and support to kids and families, who found themselves housebound as well. During this time, he also launched his bestselling Cat Kid Comic Club series, a groundbreaking story that incorporates various art forms, and encourages all kids to unleash their creativity and tell their own stories. Just one more way they can contribute something good to the world!

With this spirit in mind, we are proud to once again partner our Classrooms Care program with the Do Good campaign - as a reminder that reading for pleasure not only enriches the lives of students, but that this small act will also make a difference in the lives of children who don’t have the same access to books.

With the help of classrooms across Canada, our goal is to donate 100,000 books to children who need them most. Join us in this mission by registering below.

A note from

Kids reading

With our Classrooms Care program, teachers, students, and families along with their school and communities all across Canada come together to help ensure every child is given the opportunity to read and cherish their own books.

There is a great joy and power in the stories that fantastic authors like Dav Pilkey and others bring to children every day. Now more than ever, every child deserves to have this opportunity—to relish in stories, ignite their imaginations, and to have a book to call their very own.
