“Reading is an intellectual workout like no other.
It helps students grow as readers but also as writers, mathematicians, learners and thinkers.”
(Sullivan & Brown, 2013)
The ‘Reading Leaders’ page is a single point of access to research, programs and support that educators can use to encourage reading.

Take a look around the page and use all you can to engage and empower ‘Reading Leaders’.

Reading is the core skill that enables and powers all learning. Our children learn to read and read to learn.

The reading journey begins and is powered by helping our students develop a passion for reading; by giving them access to books and the time they need to explore, select and read their favourites.

Scholastic is dedicated to supporting school leaders in being ‘Reading Leaders’. Together—by providing access to the right books, encouraging autonomous choice and providing engaging ways to help them practice—we can get More Kids Reading, Kids Reading More.
