Scholastic Book Fairs go virtual



Support your school! Buy some great books for your kid.

Scholastic Book Fairs go virtual

Scholastic Publishing realizes that a lot has changed for families this year, but one source of magic parents can continue to count on to fill their kids with joy is the Scholastic Book Fair

Remember the anticipation you felt as a kid on a crisp fall morning? The excitement you and your classmates couldn’t contain on the short walk to the school library? The thrill of looking around a room full of displays featuring the latest Goosebumps, cool pens, bookmarks, and funky erasers you couldn’t wait to buy? The unbridled joy of reading a new book—that you chose yourself!—for the first time? 

Brand new drive-through, virtual, and revamped in-person Scholastic Book Fairs options are being held each day in communities across the country, helping parents ensure that their kids still get to experience the best day of the school year, whether they are learning remotely or in person. Get free shipping on purchases of $25 or more. 

Families can safely visit a Scholastic Book Fair—either at school or from the comfort of their home—and shop a wide and diverse selection of great books for every age group and reading level, while also supporting their school community in the process. Schools get 25% rebate to use for purchase of books for their school. 

Helping You Raise a Reader Through Access and Choice

In the past Scholastic brought books directly to your child's school. Now with Covid-19 and dealing with safe contact, you now can buy books online, and it is credited to your school.
