With so many TV shows, video games, and other things to do, how can we help kids get excited about picking up a book—and continue reading it?


At Scholastic Parents Night: Keeping Kids Engaged as Readers, a panel of Scholastic authors, editors and education experts will answer your burning questions on how to engage kids with books, build their skills, and grow their confidence.



Attendees who visit our store  after the event will receive a goodie bag (on a first come, first served basis), and all attendees will receive digital activities, brochures and more!
