About Us







Our Mission

As the largest children’s book publisher in the world, Scholastic is entrusted with the promotion of literacy through books for millions of kids of all ages and reading levels.

Our mission is built on helping children learn to read and love to read. We believe that independent reading is a critical part of children's learning and growth. With support from teachers, parents, and schools, children choose from Scholastic the books they want to read, and discover the pleasure and power of reading. Finding the right book at the right time can light an emotional spark within children that motivates them to read more, understand more, and read joyfully.

When that happens, the world opens. Everything becomes possible.
