Creative book events

CREATIVE GIFTING EVENTS

We give our gifting partners the creative tools to elevate books from their second-hand status and to ensure their event is memorable, engaging and fun. We want children to leave with a book they feel proud about having selected and excited to read.

If you are a school or other organisation gifting books within your community, we encourage you to make a splash of the books you receive.

We know that every setting is different and encourage schools to put their own stamp on their book gifting. Schools can gift in their own way or can take advantage of one of the following mechanics. We loan all resources free of charge to schools. And of course, our books are always gifted to schools free of charge.

POP UP BOOK HUT

We currently have ten Pop Up Book Huts that are loaned on rotation to a different primary school each half term. They are delivered to your school complete with hundreds of free books. A teaser campaign, a creative launch and lots of promotion to parents and carers all help to sustain interest and excitement and encourage every child to have a peek inside.

POP UP BOOKSHOP

Our Pop Up Bookshop kits contain everything a school needs to build and open their own free bookshop for their community, including beautiful publisher posters, bunting, stickers and a bookmark for every child.

Children receive a token to spend on a free book in the bookshop. The opportunity for children to experience browsing and selecting their own book amongst those on display has a hugely positive impact on their engagement and on their ability to explain their choice.

A Pop Up Bookshop can be planned in alongside your school’s other activities to ensure that a week can be set aside where every child can visit and have time to browse.
