Scholastic's Online Charity Auction

In case you have some extra dough hanging around, you might want to check out Scholastic's Read Every Day website and wander over to their Charity Buzz online auction. There you can bid on the artwork of twelve of the greatest children's illustrators. Your money will go to help Reading is Fundamental and Reach Out and Read, two literacy programs that had all of their federal funding yanked. So not only will you be helping out needy kids get their hands on books, you'll get to own a fantastic piece of art. If you win the auction, that is.

Some of the artwork you can win?

Mary GrandPre, Harry Potter illustrator

Bruce Degen, The Magic School Bus illustrator

Jeff Smith, Bone illustrator

Norman Bridwell, Clifford illustrator

So what are you waiting for? Go bid on some fantastic art!
