It’s Storia Week! Celebrate Back-to-School with FREE eBooks!
By Scholastic on September 10th, 2012
Back-to-school is always an exhilarating time at Scholastic – a time for new great books, new curriculum themes, new technology, and new ideas. This year, we are more focused than ever on making sure that the next generation of readers has access to the books they want in the formats they love. That’s why we are inviting every teacher and family to start this school year with five free eBooks when you download Storia, our new FREE eReading app designed for kids!
In fact, we are SO excited about the Storia app and eBooks that we are kicking off “Storia Week” here at Scholastic – a week-long celebration of how eBooks and eReading can help even more kids learn and love to read. Here are some ways that YOU can join in the festivities!
Play the Storia Scratch & Win Facebook Sweepstakes
Storia Scratch & Win is an exciting digital scratch card game that you do NOT want to miss! Each day this week, FIVE grand-prize winners will be chosen to win a brand-new iPad, and 20 first-prize winners will receive 10 free eBooks to start their digital libraries. And even if you’re not a winner, you’ll still get five FREE eBooks with your free Storia download!
To play, go to www.facebook.com/scholasticbookclubs
Visit the New and Improved Storia Site
The Storia site is your one-stop location to find the hottest new titles in children’s eReading. From Clifford classics to National Geographic nonfiction to Hunger Games, our goal is to offer a wide selection of quality eBooks that meet the levels and interests of every young reader. Teachers and parents can also see the latest news on Storia updates and awards, watch video tutorials, and get helpful tips on how to use Storia to build confident readers in the classroom and the home.

Try Storia In Person at The Scholastic Store
If you’re in the New York City area, be sure to visit The Scholastic Store in SoHo for a hands-on Storia experience. Families can sit at the Storia Exploratory Table to try out the app. Kids can also interact with the Storia Digital Reading Wall that features iPads arranged at all heights for different ages. Just stop by 557 Broadway and look for the big blue Storia cloud!
These are just a few of the ways we’re celebrating eReading this week – but the celebration doesn’t stop here. Throughout the year, we will be featuring tips from teachers and parents about using Storia to create reading excitement in the classroom and the home. So check back often – and if you haven’t downloaded Storia yet, now is the perfect time! Just go to www.scholastic.com/storia and get started with your five FREE eBooks.
