Where children write the books

Start now for free

Give children a real reason to write – and raise money, too!

Here's how it works.

1Write and draw

Over Book Week, during a topic, or throughout a whole term, introduce this important project, then have the children write and illustrate their pieces, on paper. Some books are whole school projects; others are by one class or year group. Here are some ideas.

2Upload

Either have teachers and TAs scan pictures and type work in to your book project page on this website, or let older children use ICT sessions to take ownership and do their own. Our image uploader matches the file's name to the child's name, to save you time.

3Proofread

Proofreading your own work is a key Communication milestone, so print out the PDF of the book at school for children to proofread, then make their edits. The website automatically updates the typeset PDF, so you can change the words as much as you like without creating more work for yourself.

4Collect payment

Just like for a school trip, write to parents and carers, who tell you how many copies they want, and who send their payment to school. You control the price, so if you want to raise money, price accordingly. Most schools choose to charge parents and carers about £6 to £10 a copy. See how much you'll raise with the price calculator.

5Place order

Place the order with us, and we print and deliver the books to school, to be sent home in the proud authors' bags.

Include every child

with professional grade, high-quality books to be enduringly proud of.
