Learning, discovery, and imagination at play. Scholastic’s mission is built on that special moment a child finds the right book to read. When once-upon-a-time becomes the only time that matters, and a child who reads becomes a child who loves to read— for a lifetime. We are dedicated to helping every child make that precious, transformative moment his or her very own—again and again.
We believe that just as independent reading is critical part of every child’s learning and growth, finding the right time is an important first step in their individual development. With support from teachers, parents and schools, children choose from Scholastic the books they want to read, and in doing so, they empower themselves and the progress they achieve through those choices.
The right book is a key. It opens a world of greater understanding, self-motivation, and joy. It opens a world of possibilities.
