Covid 19 Supply

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.

Activity Sheets to Download

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.
