Interested in Author Events at Your School?
Meeting published authors and illustrators makes books come alive for children. We bring dozens of authors and illustrators to local schools throughout the school year. Be aware that some visits are complimentary and others involve paying an honorarium to the author, but all events provide an opportunity to raise money for your school or organization through book sales. Authors’ schedules fill up quickly so contact Vickie soon to find out about hosting an author or illustrator this year at or 610-642-6274.

Read and Review
Our summer reading program allows children to borrow Advanced Copies of books that will be released in the fall. Books can be kept for up to two weeks. Each child that returns a review with their borrowed book will receive $1 store credit that can be redeemed at the end of the summer. All children are welcome to participate. Books are geared to ages 8-high school. Complete details are available in our store.

Educator Mailing List
In order to better serve members of the educational community we send out educator-only emails to let you when we are running special programs just for educators, when we are looking for schools to accommodate visiting authors, and when we have information and giveaways that might be useful for use in your classrooms or libraries. If you would like to receive these emails please let us know and we will include you on our educators list.

Just What You Need
Teachers, what if you could use part of an in-service day or a late afternoon to come to Children’s Book World and let us help you find books to support your specific curriculum. Do you need more non-fiction? More varied levels of a specific genre? High interest/low reading-level books? A great new read-aloud? Books for emotional and social growth? We’d love to show you books that are geared to just what you’re looking for. Send us an email at and let us know how we can help you.
