Free eBook Offer 2020

We offered free eBooks during the 2020 pandemic to help with school readiness from home. We wanted to help mitigate some of the disruption to normal transition plans.


The eBooks were: 

  • Customised to each school

  • Password-protected

  • 100% free (no hidden costs)

  • Good-looking on laptop, desktop or mobile (iPhone or Android)

  • An alternative to suspended taster days, events and home visits.

We wanted to offer teachers, parents and children something special for these unique times. 

At least 6,000 children benefited. Brilliant!

It was fun to be a small part of the solution in troubled times - and to get to know new schools.

Check out the feedback below.

Thank you so much for the eBook, it is beautiful. 
We can't wait to share it with our families.
