Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge! Sign up today.

Exciting news about the Summer Reading Challenge !


We all know that kids reading all summer is a priority, but motivating kids to read all summer can be a challenge.

That’s why Scholastic is excited to announce the 8th annual Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge – a free online reading program where kids can read what THEY want, and log their reading minutes to earn rewards and help set a new world record for summer reading.  It is a fun and friendly competition among schools to see who can read the most – and the school that logs the most minutes at the end of the summer, wins a visit from bestselling authors: David Shannon (elementary school prize) and Gordon Korman (middle school prize).

Starting TODAY, parents and teachers can register their kids for the 2014 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge at  

To help parents prepare for summer, Scholastic is hosting a live Facebook Live Chat (via Scholastic Parents Facebook) moderated by Lori Ess (Scholastic) and Betsy Bird (New York Public Library), on Monday, May 5th  at 9 PM (ET), titled: “A Virtual Book Swap on Summer Reading.” Please help us make 2014 the biggest Summer Reading Challenge EVER by sharing with your readers. 

And be sure to like us on ! We’ll have free resources PLUS sweepstakes every Friday!

Thanks Scholastic for a fun challenge for the kids.
