Read Around the World better than ever

Mar 07, 2014
Scholastic is now an official Kiwanis promotional partner, which means the Read Around the World program is ready to get more kids reading with your club’s help.
      Scholastic books is a Read Around the World partner with Kiwanis International
To find out if your club is passionate about improving literacy, conduct a club analysis to determine interest levels for everything from reading to kids to staffing book fairs and donating books. Check out suggested Scholastic literacy programs for ideas, especially the Reading Oasis, a Kiwanis-sponsored room in an elementary school (outside the library) that provides a safe place to enjoy books for extended daily and summer hours. Or you could provide coupons for free books to students.


Scholastic will make the most of your club’s funds by providing deeply discounted books and targeting them to special school themes and topics. Find out more about Scholastic and Read Around the World, and contact Elizabeth Warren, ewarren@kiwanis.org or +1-317-217-6211, with questions.
