Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

The 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

I love reading. I always have. Now, my kids love reading.

Scholastic sent me some books for my two kids, ages five and two. It even customized the selection of books for their age range!

Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge

To keep kids reading all summer, parents, educators, libraries, and community partners can sign up kids for the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free, global, online, and mobile reading program designed to help kids turn the “summer slide”—the learning loss which can occur over the summer months—into a “summer leap” by discovering the power and joy of reading for fun.


Starting, May 8th, and throughout the summer, kids can log their reading minutes and unlock digital rewards. How cool is that?!

At the end of the summer, the school in each U.S. state, territory, and in the District of Columbia that has logged the most reading minutes will be given the title “Best in State” and will be featured in the 2018 Scholastic Book of World Records. Pretty cool!

In addition, special recognition will be given to the top five libraries and community partner organizations nationwide with the most minutes read.

Families can visit the site to access free resources, including free summer reading book lists across all ages in both English and Spanish. The Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge is available for free at
