QR Codes Add Depth to Book Fair

QR codes enhance Book Fair experience.
Several books at this year's fair had QR codes that student and teacher's could scan to find out more about those particular titles including, free podcasts, author interviews, book talks, which feature students providing peer reviews about the book.

Earlier this year, Scholastic Book Fairs went digital with a new FREE app designed to help students, parents and teachers find the right book in a “snap.” They have a uniquely created “SCAN A COVER” option, where you can simply point and scan the cover. This connects the user with digital experiences (media) to physical products (books). The Book Fairs app reveals valuable information about each book, including reading levels, age range, videos, summary and similar titles.
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. For more information about the app, go to
