Book Talks

What is a book talk?
A member of our staff will speak about a selection of our favorite titles in a fun and informative presentation.

What ages are book talks available for?
Book talks are best suited for 1st-8th grade. Book talks are also available for college classes specializing in education, teacher/library groups, and parenting groups.

Where are book talks held?
Talks can be presented at your school or in our store. For large audiences, a Power-Point ready room may be necessary.

What is the fee for a book talk?
There is no fee. However, the book talk books must be available for purchase.

How are the books priced?
The books can either be discounted to your students/audience at 20% off the cover price or you may choose to offer them at full price and keep 20% for your organization.

How do we sell your book talk books?
We will provide the school with a form to be sent home with students the day of the book talk so they may order books. Children’s Book World will fill the orders and then a school representative can pick them up, usually about 10-14 days after the orders are received by us. Once the books are picked up we will bill the school for the books sold.

Is there a minimum or maximum audience size?
While there is no maximum, there are minimum requirements. Please contact us for specific details.

What books will be talked about, and can you meet our specific needs?
Many groups choose to hear about the newest picture or chapter books, and each book talk is individually created to meet your specifications.
