• Provide access to books at discounted prices

What books can be found in the Book Club catalogue?
Chosen by expert editors, the selections cover a wide variety of formats, genres and themes. They include classics, award winners, recently released titles and books related to other popular children’s media such as movies and television shows.
Children improve their reading skills by reading, so providing the books they will want to read is a priority.
For reluctant readers, reading practice is encouraged by the inclusion of such items as graphic novels, puzzles, activity packs and games.

 Can the school place a second order, or an order after the return-by date?
Additional orders for the current and previous issue of Book Club can be placed after your first order has been sent to Star Kids. Follow the same ordering procedure as for a normal order.
 How can the school get the parents involved?
Attach a note to the student catalogue reminding parents of the due date for
orders.
You may want to send a letter home with the first Book Club offer encouraging them to participate.
Let parents know how important a home filled with books is for creating a lifelong reader.
Keep parents up-to-date on featured books that supplement what you are doing in the classroom.
Be sure to remind them, again, about the Book Club on Parent-Teacher meetings.
