Welcome to Pop-Up Bookshop

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

Buy books with Pop-Up Bookshop online or through direct catalogue sales, or if you are interested in having an Usborne party or school event, you can enjoy additional benefits such as free delivery, special offers, discounts, and free books.

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 Pop-Up Bookshop's new initiative to help fundraise a target minimum of £40,000 Usborne Books for 25 lucky Dorset educational establishments - our first event takes place around World Book Day 2020.

📚Peter Usborne personally launched a #TransformYourSchoolLibrary campaign with the aim to get 500,000 free books into schools during the 19-20 academic year. Great Big Read aims to ensure a large chunk of these books will benefit Dorset schools.

📚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 so for a targeted fundraising amount of £25,000 this equates to a staggering £15,000 FREE books!

📚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:
