In elementary school during Scholastic Book Fairs, I'd ask for bathroom passes to hang out in the library. While there I'd browse mountains of books that planted seeds, which grew over the years into what has become my life's passion. I am beyond proud to share that One Moore Book has teamed up with Scholastic Reading Club to give Scholastic readers access to One Moore Book titles beginning in 2017.
It is a complete D R E A M to share the works of these incredible writers and illustrators through a giant like Scholastic. One Moore Book collaborators all share a passion for expanding the publishing cannon with rich, vibrant stories that celebrate the culturally diverse experiences of young readers. For generations, teachers have used Scholastic Reading Club to grow kids' lifelong love of reading. We are so pleased to join the Scholastic portfolio and to give teachers and parents an opportunity to explore our titles. If you're a teacher or parent, signing up through Scholastic Reading Club is easy.
Follow these links to get started:
You'll find the books on the *WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS* landing page. Included in the first set of distributed titles is newcomer Ibi Zoboi's stunning A is for Ayiti and ABA winning author Edwidge Danticat's The Last Mapou. Stay tuned throughout the year for releases of additional titles.
Thank you all for your continued support. Our growth would not be possible without you. Keep reading!
