The Scholastic Book Clubs ClassroomsCare is a philanthropy-based literacy campaign designed to teach children about the joys and importance of reading and giving. For each class that reads 100 books by Dec. 31, Scholastic Book Clubs, a division of Scholastic Inc., the global children’s publishing and media company, will donate 100 books to disadvantaged children nationwide. A total of up to one million new books will be donated. The ClassroomsCare initiative, now in its fourth year, is open to all classrooms nationwide through Scholastic Book Clubs catalogues and the Scholastic web site. Teachers of students in grades K-8 who order from Scholastic Book Clubs in September and October automatically receive a free ClassroomsCare participation kit, complete with a colorful poster to record classroom reading, as well as a take-home reproducible letter to get friends and family involved.
