Sharing Our Stories Online

Posted on 27/03/2020 in Books Features for Teachers

As we all adjust to the significant lifestyle changes during this time of uncertainty, we recognise the need to be flexible in our approach to granting permissions to those looking to share our stories online whilst schools and libraries remain closed. We are committed to finding the right balance between supporting our reading community and protecting the rights (and income) of our authors and illustrators.

Over the coming weeks, we will be adding to our own bank of resources with videos of creators sharing their own stories as well as activities, discussion points and learning resources for children of all ages. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for details of the latest additions, and check out our YouTube channel.

You will find a complete list of all our available resources in the Features for Teachers section of our blog – we’ll be adding much more over the coming weeks!

If you are an educator looking for a way to continue class reading or storytime, please email us with the following information:

  • Your name and name of school/library
  • Title of book
  • Where content will be posted – must be a closed group or channel, ie not accessible to the general public
  • How long it will be available for – we are requesting that content is removed once schools/libraries reopen

Please note that we do not hold audio rights for some of our books, and in those cases we need to contact the rights holder for permission before we are able to confirm your request. Please bear with us as we are receiving a high volume of requests at the moment!

We hope that by working together we can continue sharing our stories with children across the country at this difficult time.
