Scholastic Books Fairs Launches New Free App

Scholastic Book Fairs has gone 2.0 today with the official launch of our new, free Scholastic Book Fairs App, which helps parents (and teachers) find the right book for their child in a “snap.”


Our recent research shows parents are a key source of books for their kids, but many parents struggle to find the perfect book that matches their child’s reading level and interests – especially now with the implementation of the Common Core Standards and over 5 varied reading levels used nationwide.  


Our app remedies this confusion. Check out the three ways you can retrieve book information at your child's next Scholastic Book Fair:


-          Our uniquely created “SCAN A COVER” option “reads” and recognizes the cover (of over thousands of titles in its Book Fairs database)  and instantly provides reading levels,  age range, videos, summary and “similar titles.” This also can be accessed by our “BARCODE” option.


-          The “QR CODE” option provide free podcasts, author video interviews, and ‘Reading Counts’ quizzes for select titles, as well as “book talks,” which feature children providing peer reviews about the book.


Check it out today by downloading it for FREE at the Apple Store for iPhone or iPod Touch and at the GooglePlay store for Android.
