Parent Frequently Asked Questions

Parents' Guide to Scholastic Reading Club

Q: What is Scholastic Reading Club?
A:
Simply put, Scholastic Reading Club is the easiest, most reliable way to get your child excited about reading! There is a Reading Club flyer 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 student flyer, your child will find a terrific selection of new and noteworthy fiction, classics, award-winning titles, perennial favourites, reference books, and more.

Reading Club offers a convenient way to purchase the best books at huge discounts. Prices are as low as $2. Plus, if you're ever dissatisfied with an item, you can return it for a full refund.

Also, by participating in Scholastic Reading Club, your child's teacher can earn FREE teaching materials. Every order you or your child places helps earn Bonus Bank Rewards that your child's teacher can use to choose FREE classroom resources.

Scholastic Reading Club 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 Scholastic Reading Club Work?
A:
1. Teachers distribute monthly flyers to their students. 2. Students take the flyers home to select books, interactive learning tools, or other items with their parents. 3. Students return order forms and payments to their teachers. 4. Teachers place the classroom order with Scholastic Canada. 5. Within 3 weeks, the box of books arrives in the classroom. The day that the books arrive is an exciting one for students and teachers!

Q: How does Scholastic choose which products to offer in the Reading Club?
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 Reading Club offer.

Running a Reading Club

Q: I am homeschooling my children/I am a daycare teacher. Can I run a Scholastic Reading Club?
A:
Yes! We will require a signed letter of verification from your School Board, Ministry of Education, a registered Home School Association Town Council or Online 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.

Please remember to include the number of children, and their ages, and kindly forward your letter to:
