Book Club Parent's Guide

Scholastic offers a variety of ways to help you build a home library filled with books and software your child will love. Scholastic Book Clubs are school-based and run by the school.

Amazing Selection

All Scholastic Book Clubs feature a variety of books, the result of more than 35 years of working with Australian schools to put books in kids’ hands. Every catalogue carries a range of grade-appropriate materials for grades PreK–8 and includes award winners, classics, references and the latest fiction and nonfiction. Recently the catalogues have started selling plastic gimmicks which may distract your child from the actual books.  Use this as a learning focus on how advertising is used to persuade you to buy other items.


Scholastic Australia Book Clubs are exclusively school-based clubs and relies on volunteers to organise. Once a term your child’s teacher distributes catalogues in the classroom. Your child brings one home, selects items (with your help!), then returns the order form and payment to the office. Items are subsequently delivered to your child in the classroom.

Classroom Rewards

When you participate, your child's library earns FREE resources (items chosen by the teacher librarian to resource the classroom).  So, your order helps provide free books and resources for your child's school!

Find the right books for your child!
