About Great Big Read

Pop-Up Bookshop’s reading initiative champions literacy and makes a Great Big transformation to school and nursery bookshelves by delivering a bumper boost of brilliant books!


Proud to be a challenge for every child we promote inclusion and working together as a community.


Great Big Read settings benefit from lots of extra free books… without affecting limited annual budgets!


Check out our introductory promotional video including testimonials from Avonwood Primary School, Heatherlands Primary School, and Tops Day Nurseries.

Join the fun!

Our next Great Big Read event is happening 14th February - 6th March 2022. Join the most inclusive reading initiative in Dorset. Don’t miss out... register your school or nursery today!
