Book Fair Gift Vouchers are the simple, secure way to ensure your child gets the books they want when the Book Fair arrives and are perfect if you can’t make it to the Book Fair. Even better, you’ll get 20% extra free when you buy online meaning a £12 voucher costs only £10, a £6 voucher costs only £5 and so on.

Your child’s school will earn Rewards for free books on the full value of the voucher, rather than the discount price.

Once a purchase has been made, you will receive the voucher in an email which can be printed and given to your child – much safer to carry than cash! Vouchers can be purchased up until midnight on the day before the collection of the Book Fair. Please speak to your school to confirm the Book Fair dates.

Reading tips

Did you know, children are five times more likely to finish a book that they have chosen themselves? This makes a Book Fair the perfect place for a reluctant reader to find their feet with books.

When a child’s imagination is captured by a book, you want to nurture it, nourish it and, above all, keep that spark alive. That’s where our handy Reading Lists come in, meaning you’ll always have a reading recommendation to hand when enthusiasm strikes.
