Scholastic Teacher Store Book Grant


This grant round has closed.

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”
- Anna Quindlen
How Reading Changed My Life

“There is no substitute for books in the life of a child.”
- Mary Ellen Chase
American educator and author

“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading – something that will stretch their imaginations, something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.”
-Katherine Paterson
Award-winning children’s book author
