Scholastic Accused of Misusing Book Clubs

Scholastic holds book fairs and sends flyers home all the time. Parents send their kids to school with money for newest Goosebumps book, and they come home with battery-operated toys. Do you see where some people might be upset? On average, 1/3 of the merchandise they sell is NOT a book. While parents are hoping their child is going to be enaged in reading, it instead feels like a shopping spree at Toys-R-Us. In other words, kids would rather play with their favorite heroes, not read about them...and Scholastic has been able to capitalize on that for over a decade.
