Scholastic Book Giveaway and Summer Reading Program

This contest is closed.
Check out our winners.
______________________


In honor of Scholastic's launch of their Summer Reading Buzz web site, they are giving ten (10) lucky Goodies for Mom readers the opportunity to win a book custom selected just for their child by Scholastic.

Summer Reading Buzz is a site created to keep kids reading over summer vacation, since many studies show that when kids do not read for extended periods they slide backwards. The good news is that when kids read “4 or More” books over the summer, they are reported to do better on their reading comprehension scores when they go back to school. To help in this effort of keeping children reading this summer, Scholastic created this fun site where kids can log the books they read. The best part is that for every four (4) books they read and log, Scholastic will donate a book to a child in need through the Room to Read charity! Plus, if that is not enough itself, children who read four or more books, can enter the “READ & DREAM” sweepstakes for a chance to win a family vacation to WALT DISNEY WORLD!! All this for reading…. sounds great to us.


To enter to win a Scholastic book, visit Scholastic's Summer Reading Buzz and pick a book off the summer book lists that your child enjoys. Come back here and leave a comment with that book title and a valid e-mail address. Ten (10) winners will be randomly selected. Scholastic will then pick a book just for your child based on the book you selected, your child's age, and sex.
Deadline is Monday, June 23 at midnight EST.

[Visit Scholastic's Summer Reading Buzz now.]

Definitely the Clifford books (I think "Clifford: The Missing Beach Ball" is the only one we need).

Thanks for the contest!

pancak said...

I think my daughter would be interested in reading "The Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming." She's going into sixth grade and is getting interested in the bigger issues we face in this world. She's an avid reader and orders books from Scholastic every month.

elmomomi said...

There are so many that she would enjoy. Horrible Harry is a good one. My daughter is on such a reading kick right now. She is 7 and gets very excited to find chapter books. She reads well above her level and is so proud of herself

rebecca said...

Daughter loves Abby Hayes books, only has 2 of them would love more!

blacarly said...

We love Scholastic Books. My kids and grandkids have all grown up on them. I always order them for my students at school too!!! They are always a favorite:)

Alimar said...

The Scholastic program's "Buzzworthy Book of the Week," Owen & Mzee, is a favorite of my 7-year-old animal-loving son who bought it at one of his school's Scholastic Book Fairs. He also loves the Magic Tree House books. My 9-year-old son loves the whole Harry Potter series, the Time Warp Trio books, and Ron Roy's A to Z Mysteries. My toddler likes Curious George books and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and would probably like all the other books for young children, too! I'd love to win a book for any one of my boys, but it would probably be most useful for one of my older boys right now!
