It’s time to stock your shelves for summer–the bookshelves, that is. Find your way to Scholastic’s 2016 Big Event Warehouse Sale in Grayslake where you will find deep discounts on brand-new books for all of your summer reading needs and beyond.
Mark your calendars, the sale begins the evening of Monday, May 16 and continues through Thursday, May 19, 2016. Refresh your home, school or homeschool library. Give your kids a jump-start on their summer reading list with a brand-new book on the last day of school. Put a few new books away to ward off the rainy-day blues. Fill-up your child’s, or your own, vacation carry-on bag now before the packing frenzy begins.
A wide selection of books for readers of all ages can be found at the sale, including fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks and books for adults. You never know what you will find at this treasure trove of a sale. And the best part–books are discounted up to 80% at this sale. If you register in advance, you will receive a Super Savings Pass that will save you even more money on purchases over $50.
If you don’t already have it, be sure to install the FREE Scholastic Book Fairs App to your phone before you go. The app allows you to scan any book’s barcode or QR code at the sale or any future Scholastic Book Fair and immediately glean information such as:
- reading levels (AR, Lexile, DRA, Guided Reading, and Scholastic Reading Counts!),
- age and grade-level information,
- book summaries,
- videos and podcasts, and
- awards and honors.
The Scholastic Book Fairs App takes the guesswork out of choosing books, so you know what you choose will be perfectly suited for your young readers. The app also allows you to build a wish list on your phone or mobile device. Genius!
You won’t want to miss the biggest and best customer appreciation book sale this season. And, if you don’t already know about it, you can pre-register your children for the 2016 Scholastic Reading Challenge, which begins on May 9, 2016. This FREE reading program encourages children to read every day, and provides fun facts about authors, resources for parents, and virtual reading incentives.
Be sure to add the 2016 Big Event Warehouse Sale dates to your planner and bring a friend. Getting started with summer reading has never been easier.
