Pop-Up Bookshop has a HUGE passion for children's books and sells award-winning Usborne books online and at local events and schools.

Pop-Up Bookshop is on a mission to improve literacy in schools and families across Dorset! We founded Great Big Read in September 2019 which is a local initiative to get more Dorset children reading. 

📚Great BIG Read is a literacy initiative to help fundraise free Usborne Books for lucky Dorset educational establishments.  

📚Our first event took place around World Book Day 2020 and raised over £15,000 Usborne Books for schools and nurseries!

📚Without affecting limited school budgets, Great Big Read instead fully engages pupils through sponsored reading that embeds into your curriculum and school routine.

📚Usborne will donate 60% FREE books on all school orders over £600!

📚Facilitated entirely by Pop-Up Bookshop we maximise funds using a virtual book fair add-on as well as business and individual donations through a giant Community Book Pledge.

📚 If you are a teacher, TA, PTFA member, or passionate parent who would like Pop-Up Bookshop to help your school gain thousands of pounds of Usborne Books please contact:

Vanessa Marsh on 07932 325193 or vanessa@popupbookshop.net
