Every aspect of your event is handled by your Organiser free of charge. Working with you every step of the way, they will ensure that you and your students have the very best experience – your only job is to choose lots of lovely free Usborne books!

Everyone set about reading and listening to all kinds of books and supported the Usborne Ready, Steady, Read challenge which helped us to get such fabulous new books in school. It has really inspired the children. They are keen to dive into and enjoy all the new books we have.” Tracey Holmes Headteacher of Tansley Primary School


Early Years Children are never too young to lose themselves in a magical story, and our early years events are perfect for encouraging early reading development. •

Why not have a sponsored listen, where children can spend the day enjoying their favourite stories, whilst raising money for new books for your early years setting?

Or have a mini book fair where little ones can explore our early years range, and find their new favourite book?

Or consider holding a starting school evening, where parents are able to ask questions about books that could support their children as they move up to primary school.


Primary Our extensive range of fiction and non-fiction titles is perfect for pupils who are gaining confidence in reading, and are searching for books that match their interests as well as supporting the curriculum. •

Looking for an event to get the whole school engrossed in books without drawing on your existing budget? Why not have a sponsored reading event and see how many titles your pupils can read, whilst raising money for brand new books for your school.

Fancy a traditional book fair? Our Organisers will be happy to showcase a range of our titles and to help each pupil to find something that really appeals to them. No clunky bookcases or need for you or the PTA to stay late – your Organiser will handle everything!

Want to know which books to recommend on parents’ evenings? Let your Organiser assist parents in finding the right titles for their son or daughter, from help with spelling and punctuation, to simply reading for pleasure.


Secondary Secondary school students can often lose interest in reading as the pressures of exams loom. Your Organiser can help reconnect them to books they will adore, as well as internetlinked titles to assist with last-minute revision. •

Why not host a whole school competition? Challenge your students to read as much as possible in a sponsored read, and see how much money they can raise for new books for the library.

Looking for an event where students are able to ask questions about the titles, and seek recommendations for new reads? Let your Organiser play host, and help students find books that really speak to them.

Want to provide a service where parents can ask an expert about the best books for their children? Invite our Organisers to your parents’ evening and let them recommend the best new books, or a range of non-fiction titles to support specific subjects.
