New, Free Scholastic Book Fairs App Helps Parents Find The Right Children's Book In A Snap

"This new app is revolutionizing the way parents navigate the school book fair and will help them easily pin point the right book for their child," said Alan Boyko, President of Scholastic Book Fairs. "In this era of higher standards, students are required to enhance their vocabulary, read more complex texts, and develop greater critical thinking skills. To do that, we know that our students must spend more time reading independently, and the Scholastic Book Fair app is equipped with the technology to help every child find the books that they cannot wait to read."

"Scholastic has joined with the best of breed technology partners to meet the needs of our parent and teacher customers," stated Deborah Forte, President of Scholastic Media. "We are proud to bring a mobile version of the Book Fair to the market, allowing kids and parents instant access to a wealth of information about the books they want to read and extending the excitement of the Book Fair experience."

The Scholastic Book Fairs app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch at The app is also available for free download on select Android devices.
