Please be aware that due to the current lockdown conditions, some titles may be “out of stock at the publisher” – all our items show “in stock” by default because we order everything on request. This means that some titles might not be available, so please check if possible with us before ordering. If books are not available from the publisher, we will first ask in our Bookselling Network, and then will advise you if we cannot get your book.
Thank you for your understanding.
At the moment, I’m sure you’re all worried about keeping the children entertained for weeks on end!
I’d normally write this post in time for the school holiday, but it seems to have come early, so I’m doing it now.
We have some wonderful publishers who have created activity sheets for the children, that you can download and do at home. They should mostly download as PDFs, which you can read using the free Adobe reader (or whatever it’s called these days), and print off on your home printer.
If you don’t have a home printer, then you could use your machine’s editing tools to draw/write on the PDF on screen and save the work.
If you’d like to show us what you’ve been up to, please post to our social media – we’re @nickelbooks on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and if you use the hashtag #lookwhatwedid and #kidsbookactivities we’ll see it!
If you want to order any of the books in the activity packs, I’ll be uploading the products to the website this week, but if I haven’t done the one you want yet, please shout Send My Book! by email or by message on Facebook.
World Book Day 2020 is on Thursday 5th March!
The biggest part of the campaign this year is to Share A Million Stories – so we want to know about all the stories you’re sharing and enjoying together.
So, what counts as Sharing A Story?
Basically any reading at all!!
We want to hear about you loving a book – so that can be listening to mum or dad, your favourite aunty, your foster carer, your best friend, your teacher, your local bookseller or librarian, the curator at the local museum – anybody who can read a story for you to enjoy!
As usual, we will be accepting the £1 World Book Day tokens – either in exchange for one of the special £1 WBD Books, or as £1 any book priced £2.99 or more.
If you live in the Sittingbourne area, get in touch and we will get one to you – from the 27th February to 31st March.
If you live outside the area, I’m afraid we will have to charge postage on any requests.
But you will be able to also buy the books from us for £1 each, plus postage under £5.
If you would like us to visit your school on or around World Book Day, then PLEASE get in touch with us to arrange a visit!
We offer story sharing an talking about books, and we can bring our Travelling Bookshop to sell books to families after school.
(We can also visit Home Education events)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
