Scholastic Home Base is a fun, safe, and completely free online destination where kids can create their own avatar, interact with their favorite Scholastic characters, play games, and read books. Home Base is moderated 24/7. 

Starting May 4, kids will be able to visit a special Scholastic Summer Read-a-Palooza zone where they can start and keep their reading streaks, earn special rewards, and more. At any point during the summer, kids can download and print a report of their reading progress to share with their parent, educator, librarian, or group leader.
