Alison was a Children’s Bookseller for a major bookshop for a number of years and in that time found books for both parents and for schools. She has a vast experience of children’s books.
For larger schools with a wide range of pupils and teaching plans packages from the big suppliers can represent a good option, but for smaller schools with a limited intake and a limited number of curriculum options pre-set packages do not always give the best value for money.
That is where we can provide an alternative.
Using her experience Alison can help schools by putting together tailored lists of books that fit in with the school’s projects and the mix of pupils in the school. You tell her what topics, what age ranges and any special requirements and she will give you a list of books to choose from. You can then decide what you want to buy.
Alison works closely with the school and its librarian to understand what the school needs. Do they need some of the books to stretch the more able pupils? Or some to support children who are struggling. With Alison you are talking to someone who knows and loves books, not just someone with a sales target.
We can help make the best use of your budget by finding and supplying the books you actually want and need for your library.
