CBW Summer Reading Programs

Children’s Book World offers three options to support your Summer Reading Program.

Allowing your students the chance to purchase their summer reading books through your school provides a convenient service for all of your school families. You decide whether you want to offer families discounted prices or if you want this to be a source of fundraising for your school.

Review the options below and if you have any questions, email us at bookfairs@childrensbookworld.net

Option 1: Summer Reading Paper Order Form

CBW will create an order form using your specific titles (or let us know if we can help you develop a list) to share with your school community.  Families select the titles they want and return the forms to you with payment.  (20% discount may be offered to families or kept by the school.) We’ll notify you when the books are ready for pickup to be distributed to your students. Shipping is available for an additional fee.

Option 2: Summer Reading Online Orders

CBW will send you a link to our curated book lists either offered at 15% discount to families or as cash back to the school. Families can shop and pay for titles online. Books will be available for pick up at the store or families may choose to have them shipped for an additional feel.

Option 3: Summer Reading In-school Book Fairs

CBW will create boxes of the titles on your list (or let us know if we can help you develop a list) for a school volunteer to pick up. Unsold books are returned to us and we bill the school less 20% for all books sold.
