Tune in! Scholastic on the radio with back-to-school tips

As kids get ready to go “back to school,” families will face the challenge of motivating children to read daily outside of school as homework and extracurricular activities begin to fill up a child’s schedule. Yet, recent research shows daily independent reading can help children develop vocabulary, comprehension skills and stamina – all critical skills for school success. Families need easy, actionable tips and resources to make reading for fun at home a priority.

Children’s book expert David Allender, Scholastic Book Clubs Editorial Director, will be on the air tomorrow morning to discuss key findings from the Kids & Family Reading Report and help parents understand their role in influencing their children’s reading habits. David will also share upcoming trends in children’s literature, top book picks for all ages, and provide helpful “reading resolutions” for families to adopt during the new school year.
