We offer a number of options to bring books, stories, and literacy to your schools and classrooms. Some of the services we provide are:
Author/illustrator visits: We work with a wide range of authors throughout the year. Authors will visit schools for a fee, or alternatively, many of them will run sessions at Chicken and Frog. Occasionally authors will visit for free, as part of a book tour, with the proviso that you order books in advance of the event. We will set a minimum order depending on the size of the audience.
Bespoke book tokens: We can create bespoke book tokens for prize giving.
Book service: Books can be ordered via email, over the phone or in person. All schools receive a 10% discount (please note that some educational titles carry a smaller discount from the publishers), as well as free delivery. Orders are invoiced to the school, with a month to settle the payment, apart from the end of the summer term, when settlement needs to occur before the end of the term.
How does it work?
- We will create a bespoke book list for your school.
- We will arrange delivery in the week before your fair.
- After the fair, you will be asked to update the spreadsheet provided, to show what you have sold and what needs to be returned.
- The school will be invoiced for the total spend.
- The books, along with the return paperwork (provided) will be collected via UPS.
- There is a carriage fee of £5.85 per box returned if sales fall under £1,000. This is to cover costs.
- All books to be sold at 99p less than the RRP, or schools can earn 99p per book, to spend within 2 weeks of the book fair.
Library Audits: We will work with your librarian/literacy lead, to audit your library/school reading resources, providing comprehensive lists of titles to suit the needs of your specific school. This service costs £45 per hour.
Storytelling/writing workshops: Natasha is available for interactive storytelling sessions and creative writing workshops, across the key stages. These sessions can be planned to complement specific topics, themes and genres, depending upon your requirements. The fee is £45 per hour.
