Scholastic launches Summer Reading BUZZ!
From School Library Journal: "Beware the 'summer slide.' That's Scholastic's intention this spring, as it rolls out its Scholastic Summer Reading BUZZ!, offering kids book lists, interactive book-themed activities, and a chance to donate books to underprivileged children. For every four books that kids read and log online, Scholastic will donate a book to Room to Read, a nonprofit that establishes libraries and schools in the developing world. The BUZZ Web site launches April 15, 2008
