Scholastic offers a Book Fair scheme that allows schools to earn up to 60% of their Book Fair sales value in Rewards. The Rewards can then be used to buy books and/or teaching resources from a range of over 10,000 titles available through the Scholastic Schools Catalogue or the online Scholastic Shop.
Scholastic supplies mobile bookcases pre-packed with a selection of over 200 curated titles for the Book Fair. The selection includes titles for all reading ages and interests and covers a range of price points – starting from £2.99 – to ensure that there is something for everybody.
Schools are responsible for planning, promoting and running their Book Fair, but Book Fair Coordinators are available to offer help and advice over the phone. There are also free planning and promotional resources available to download from the Scholastic Book Fair website.
Cost: Free. In addition, schools can earn up to 60% of the value of the event sales, depending on the total value of the sales.
