Scholastic Canada is pleased to announce that we will be extending our read aloud permission policy to December 31, 2020.
If you have previously emailed firstname.lastname@example.org with your request for English-language books, you may keep your video live until December 31, 2020.
However, all NEW requests from schools and libraries after July 1, 2020 for Scholastic Canada and Éditions Scholastic (French) books must be made through Access Copyright: https://www.accesscopyright.ca/read-aloud/
We also invite you to explore and share the following free resources this summer:
- Summer Reading: Our Summer Reading program offers a selection of free books to read online as well as the opportunity for children to track their daily reading progress by logging Reading Streaks™. A new Canadian section features summer-themed books by Canadian authors and illustrators, as well as many activities to keep kids busy!
- School Rules! Munsch at Home: Listen to Robert Munsch read his own stories, and enjoy puzzles and games. Build important skills in language arts, social studies, math, art, science and more with the help of Canada's favourite storyteller!
- Fun Downloadable Activities: Download fun games, quizzes, activities and discussion guides for children of all ages.
- Home Base: Our digital destination where kids can spend time engaging with their favorite authors and characters, discover new books and series, play book-based games, and flex their creativity with a variety of activities.
We hope these resources will help enrich your continuing educational goals throughout the summer. Thank you for all your efforts to enhance remote learning for children. Scholastic is grateful for your partnership as we continue to develop new ways of addressing the needs of parents, teachers and students during these difficult times.
As always, if you have questions about permission to use any Scholastic Canada publications, please email email@example.com.
