About Reading Club
  • +What is Scholastic Reading Club?

      Simply put, Scholastic Reading Club is the easiest, most reliable way to get your child excited about reading! There is a Reading Club flyer for every grade level from preschool through high school. Each club is exclusively school-based, and is run by a classroom teacher. Each month in the student flyer, your child will find a terrific selection of new and noteworthy fiction, classics, award-winning titles, perennial favourites, reference books, and more.

      Reading Club offers a convenient way to purchase the best books at huge discounts. Prices are as low as $2. Plus, if you're ever dissatisfied with an item, you can return it for a full refund.

      Also, by participating in Scholastic Reading Club, your child's teacher can earn FREE teaching materials. Every order you or your child places helps earn Bonus Bank Rewards that your child's teacher can use to choose FREE classroom resources.

      Scholastic Reading Club is your partner in helping your child fall in love with books and become a great reader. That's why we're here. Happy Reading!

  • +How Does Scholastic Reading Club Work?
        Scholastic Reading Club has served schools and families since 1957 by providing affordable, just-right books for kids that are carefully selected by teachers and reading experts. Reading Club supports teachers with FREE Books and resources for the classroom, while helping children discover the pleasure and power of reading each month through choosing and owning their own books. How it works:

        1. Teachers distribute monthly flyers to their students.
        2. Students take the flyers home to select books, interactive learning tools, or other items with their parents.
        3. Parents can place their child’s order online or students can return order forms and payments to their teachers.
        4. Teachers place the classroom order with Scholastic Canada.
        5. Within 3 weeks, the box of books arrives in the classroom.

      The day that the books arrive is an exciting one for students and teachers!

  • +Who Can Order from Scholastic Reading Club?
        Students and parents whose classroom teacher participates in Scholastic Reading Club are welcome to order.

        If a child’s teacher does not participate in Scholastic Reading Club, let the teacher know you’re interested in purchasing books through Scholastic Reading Club for your child. Share the Reading Club web address with the teacher so that he or she can learn more: scholastic.ca/canadaclubs

        Parents who home school their children can also participate in Scholastic Reading Club and set up an account. Please contact one of our Account Verification Agents at 1-800-268-3860 to verify your eligibility.

  • +Why Do Parents Place Reading Club Orders Through a Teacher?
        Scholastic Reading Club has a unique model. Because we purchase rights from other publishers to publish their books, we’re able to produce affordable products that are only available for distribution in the school market. That means all orders are placed through the teacher and are delivered directly to the classroom.

        Plus, you help earn FREE books and resources for your child's classroom! With every class order teachers earn Bonus Rewards for FREE Books and quality teaching resources for the classroom.

  • +How Can I Get Involved in Scholastic Reading Club?

      Scholastic Reading Club is licensed to run exclusively through the school. Some parents get involved by helping their child's teacher run the Reading Club each month.

  • +Benefits of Placing Your Reading Club Orders Online
        Sending your Scholastic Reading Club order to your child’s teacher online provides benefits to you, your child, and your child’s classroom, in ways that ordering with the paper flyer does not. These include:

        You Can Pay with a Cheque, Credit or PayPal:

        • The items you order are sent directly to your child’s classroom, while your payment information is sent directly to Scholastic.

        • The teacher will never see your credit card or PayPal information, and our system is secure.

        • Your card or PayPal account will be charged once the teacher submits the combined class order and Scholastic ships the order.

        You’ll Know When Your Order Has Been Submitted: You’ll receive an email confirmation when the teacher submits the classroom order to Scholastic for processing. Plus you can check the order status in your online account.

        Keep Track of What You’ve Ordered: Your online order history shows the details of previous orders.

        You Help Earn FREE Books and Resources for Your Child’s Classroom: With every class order teachers earn Bonus Rewards for FREE Books and quality teaching resources for the classroom.

  • +How does Scholastic choose which products to offer in the Reading Club?

      Our team of editors pores through literally thousands of books published for children every year and selects high quality, grade-level appropriate titles for each Reading Club offer.

Account Information
  • +How to Create a Reading Club Account

      To enter the Scholastic Reading Club website, parents need to create an account and connect to a teacher who is participating in Reading Club. This ensures that the orders you place are delivered to the correct classroom and that the classroom will receive all of its rewards.

      Here’s how to create a Reading Club account:

        1. Select to connect to your child's teacher

        2. In the window that opens, select Find Your Teacher and then search by province and city or postal code to find your school.

        3. Choose your school name and select Next to access the list of teachers from that school who are registered with Reading Club Online.

        4. Select your teacher’s name, then Next and Create An Account

        If you cannot find your child’s teacher in our system, contact the teacher directly. It’s very possible that he or she participates in Reading Club but does not use the online ordering site. If this is the case, you can order using the paper order forms and the form of payment the teacher prefers.

        5. On the Create an Account window, enter your name, email address, password, update your preferences, and read and accept our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy then select Continue. (The email address and password you submit are what you will use to sign in to Reading Club on future visits.)

        6. You’ll be prompted to Add a Child to your account next. All items ordered through Reading Club must be associated with a child's name so that the order is sent to the correct teacher. Enter your child's name and grade and select Add. Once you add a child, you'll be ready to start shopping!
  • +Register Your Child(ren)

      Every item you order through Scholastic Reading Club must be assigned to a child so that it is delivered to the correct teacher and classroom. There are a few ways to register/add a child to your Reading Club account.

      When you first create your Reading Club account, you will add a child and connect them to their teacher as part of the set up process.

      After you enter the site you can add a child-- or multiple children—to your Reading Club account any time. Here’s how:

    • Login to Reading Club Online and select My Account, then Profile. Your Reading Club account will open.
    • Find My Children in the footer of the page and choose Add a Child.
    • Enter the child’s information (name, grade) and then select Find Your Teacher and follow the prompts to connect them to their teacher.
    • Once you select Save, this information will be saved to your account.
    • Repeat the process if you have more than one child to add.

    • Note:
    • You only need to add (or update information for) a child once during each school year, unless they change schools or teachers.
    • One order and one payment can be made for multiple children and the books and products will be sent directly to each child’s classroom. Your payment goes directly to Scholastic.
  • +When Will My Credit Card Be Charged?
        When you order from Scholastic Reading Club online, your credit card is not charged until the order is shipped to the classroom.

        Please note, at the time your order is submitted your credit card will be pre-authorized for the full amount of the order to ensure that the payment method is valid. (This is a standard banking practice over which Scholastic has no control.) This authorization is not a charge, although some banks may hold the authorized funds as unavailable until the authorization expires. It’s important to keep the amount of your order available in your account so that the charge can be completed after the teacher submits the order for processing and the item is shipped.

  • +If You Have a Billing Issue
        If you have a question regarding a credit card charge, a cheque submitted through a teacher, or other billing issue, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-268-3860 or readingclubparents@scholatic.ca

        • The name of your child’s teacher and school information

        • The nature of the inquiry .

  • +What will happen to the teachers connected to my account when the school year ends?
        At the end of every school year the teacher you are connected to will be removed from your account. This helps in the transition from one school year to the next, so you remember to connect to your child’s new teacher in the next school year.

      All Reading Club orders are delivered 7 to 10 business days after the teacher has submitted the class order. Usually, within 3 weeks, the box of books arrives in the classroom.

      Many browser-related problems can be easily fixed simply by clearing your cache and/or cookies. (Keep in mind that clearing your cookies will remove all website information stored in your browser, such as sign-in information, passwords, site-specific preferences, etc.)


      What Are Cookies and Cache?

      Cookies

      These are small data files that websites create on your computer to record your preferences when using that website. For example, they are the reason a site can remember your username and password (so you don’t have to type it in every visit), help you stay logged in to the site, and allow the site to “remember” what items you have saved to your shopping cart. (Like many websites, scholastic.ca uses “cookie” technology to collect non-personal identifiable information to benefit our customers’ experience. Please see our privacy policy for full details.)

      Cache

      Your computer’s cache stores temporary Internet files, keeping track of the pages you have visited on the web and saving the information for short periods of time. It is what allows you to hit the back button on your browser and navigate to the previous page you were on.
