2022 Program Details
A Fun, Free and Safe Program for Kids
May 9 – August 19, 2022
The Scholastic Summer Reading program offers kids an exciting, free, and safe summer reading experience, while helping to provide books to kids with limited or no access over the summer, keeping every child reading.
From May 9 through August 19, kids can visit the summer zone in Scholastic Home Base, a completely free digital destination which offers stories, characters, games, and a community of readers. Home Base is moderated for safety 24/7.
Visit Home Base
By creating an account on Home Base, kids can join a community of readers and will be able to read books and stories; attend author events; interact with their favorite characters; play book-based games and activities; join dance parties; and more!
Keep a Reading Streak™
Kids will be able to track their summer reading by reading every day and maintaining a Reading Streak™ in Home Base.
The longer a child extends their reading streak™, the more digital experiences they earn! Kids can read any book of their choice and download and print a report of their reading progress at any time.
Help Donate Books
By keeping reading streaks in Home Base, kids will help unlock a donation of 100,000 books from Scholastic to Save the Children. The books will go to kids in rural America with limited or no access to books.
