Welcome to Children’s Book World’s Book Fair Page! We are partnering with Bookshop.org, a company that supports online sales for independent bookstores, to run our virtual fairs.
The fair will run November 13th through 24th, and your School will receive 15% cashback of all sales purchased during those days. Here's how the fair will work:
- You can browse our lists, but any purchase you make on the site will be included in the school’s cashback. Use the search box at the top of the page to access almost any book in print. As long as Children’s Book World Book Fairs appears in the top left corner as your bookstore, your purchases count for the fair and your school’s fundraiser.
- All purchases on Bookshop will be shipped from the wholesaler's warehouse directly to the purchasers (or to gift recipients). There is not an option for in-school or in-store pickup. You will be able to obtain information about shipping time and cost when you check out, but generally we say to allow 1-2 weeks. Please keep in mind that books on Bookshop are often discounted! That means that with the shipping costs, the book will cost approximately the same amount as it would in a store (or some other eCommerce websites that shall remain nameless).
- If you purchase books from Teacher Wish Lists, or to donate to the school otherwise, please have them shipped to you and then bring them to the school.
- You can also purchase books at Children’s Book World during the book fair and have the books count toward the school credit. Just let us know at checkout that you want them applied to the fair, and we'll add them to the school total. We also sell gift certificates through our store. Please contact us directly for those, or copy/paste this link: https://childrensbookworld.net/product/childrens-book-world-gift-card/ , and tell us that they’re for the fair.
- Gift wrapping is now available on Bookshop, for a small fee, and you can have books shipped directly to the recipients.
- If you want to have books shipped to multiple locations, please place separate orders for each location.
- If while browsing through the site, you find another store listed as your affiliate in the upper left corner, here's how you can return to having CBW listed there instead: type "Children’s Book World Book Fair" in the search box, click on "Show results for SHOPS," and then click on View Shop under Children’s Book World Book Fair. That will ensure your purchases will be credited to the school. Be sure to choose Children’s Book World Book Fair, instead of Children’s Book World, because Children’s Book World is our main Bookshop page, and we wouldn’t be able to tell that your purchases should be credited to your school.
- For any customer service questions about your orders, please contact Bookshop via the "Support/Help" link at the bottom of every page.
