The Rewards can be used to buy books and teaching resources from a range of over 10,000 titles available through the Scholastic Schools Catalogue or the online Scholastic Shop.
Travelling Books supplies mobile bookcases pre-packed with a selection of hundreds of titles that cover all reading ages and interests. Prices start from £2.99 to ensure that there is something for everybody.
Schools are responsible for planning, promoting and running their Book Fair, but local Book Fair Distributors are available to provide advice and support over the phone. There are also free planning and promotional resources available to download from the Travelling Books 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.
