Dear Parent,

Now it's easier than ever to find the perfect books for your child -- shop our NEW online Book Clubs Web site. Choose from a much-wider selection of books than in the printed flyer. Plus, you can send your orders directly to me online and use your credit card to pay.

Best of all, we earn a FREE book for the classroom library every time a parent places an order online.*

It's so simple! Here's how it works:
  • SIGN UP at On the parent page, click the "Register" button in the "First Time Here?" section. Register for your own user name and password. When prompted, enter the one-time Class Activation Code shown above. This unique code ensures that your order is sent to me. 

  • SELECT the books you'd like to order -- choose from thousands of titles -- many more than in our monthly flyers. 

How It Works for Parents

Step 1. Shopping the Monthly Selections


Scholastic Book Clubs provides monthly flyers to your child's teacher to hand out in class. Each flyer includes dozens of affordably priced books and even specially selected book packs that are just right for your child's reading level.


Review the Book Club flyer

Browse through the flyer with your child, choosing which favorites to order. Be sure to place your order by the due date your child's teacher indicated on the flyer, so your child's books will arrive along with the rest of the class' in the monthly shipment.



Sign in to the Book Clubs site

When you sign in, you'll see a personalized message from your child's teacher indicating the due date. You may also see the teacher's specialized book recommendations.

In addition to the books featured in the flyer each month, you can find an expanded online selection of titles in the Club Shop section. Book Clubs now offers eBook versions of some of the hottest titles.

You can view the reading level of each book (Lexile, Guided Reading, or DRA) to see which books best match your child's reading skills.


Help your child's classroom

Step 2. Submitting Your Child's Order

After you submit your order, your child's teacher sends the entire class order to Scholastic. 
This way, all the students receive their orders together in one book box.


Submit your order to your teacher

When you order online, you pay by credit card, so there's no need to send money to school with your child.

You can also place your child's order by filling out the paper order form on the back of the flyer and submitting a personal check for the amount due. Please do not send cash.


Class order submitted to Scholastic

Your child's teacher will wait until the due date has been reached and then submit the entire class order to Scholastic. You will then receive an e-mail notification so you'll know the book box is on its way.


Every book you order earns your child's teacher Bonus Points. Teachers use Bonus Points to order books and key supplies for the classroom. Plus, every time you place a book order online, your child's classroom will receive a free book for its library!

Check to see if your child's teacher has created a Classroom Wish List. If so, you can select any of those titles and donate them directly to the classroom. 


Step 3.  Books Arrive at School!

Once the order has been placed, the book box will be delivered right to your child's classroom, where the teacher will hand out the books.

It's always a special moment to see an entire classroom of students bursting with excitement to receive the books they ordered.

The Scholastic editorial team continues to search for just-right books throughout the school year, so be on the lookout for the flyer every month. It will be filled with affordably priced, quality book selections that are sure to keep your child reading.
