Did you know that every November, Scholastic offers a very special catalog specifically aimed at providing great reading materials for the youngest readers? It’s true! We’ve partnered with Reach Out and Read, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preparing young children to succeed in schools by working with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together. With our special Reach Out and Read! offer, we hope to not only provide your child with the best literature for the season, but also for children in need as well. With every item you order from this catalog, Scholastic will donate one book to Reach Out and Read’s worthy organization. It’s that simple!
Some very special titles that we’re excited about are:
Let’s Get a Checkup!
Pascal Lemaitre (of Firefighter Ted fame) is fast becoming one of our favorite illustrators, and this collaboration with author Alan Katz makes for a funny and informative animal story about going to the doctor!
Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse
One of my all-time favorite stories about a little mouse and his wish for a real friend. We love author/illustrator Leo Lionni!
Christmas with You
This is a very sweet holiday story that’s great for introducing family traditions during the season—a fantastic read-aloud!
Disney Classic Pooh: Mind Your Manners
Winnie-the-Pooh has been invited to a party, but can he use good manners to get along with others? A sweet manners lesson featuring classic Winnie-the-Pooh illustrations.
Knees and Toes!
Follow the teddy bears as they teach you about your head, shoulders, knees, and toes! Includes tabbed pages for easy turn-the-page fun for the littlest of learners.
