Storytelling and Read alouds
As Salaam Alaykum, educators, librarians, madrassas and bookshops. When creating read-alouds we encourage you to state the following:
- Details of your organisation; library, school, or community group
- Contact info for the person responsible for the read aloud.
- Title, author and ISBN of the book that is read
- A link to www.kubepublishing.com in the description and suggested retailers in your local area if outside the UK.
- Links to the video/stream.
When possible please do email us at marketing(@)kubepublishing(.com) when a story or session is posted with the following information:
- Name and address of physical institution (school, library, bookshop) or web/profile link (Blog, YouTube channel, Instagram)
- Title, author, illustrator of book being read
- Detail of how the reading is being shared, please include links where appropriate
Permission is not required for live storytelling of our books that is not recorded, archived or uploaded!
We do not encourage recorded read-alouds which simply show images with a voice-over nor do we allow monetisation of read alouds.
Lots of people have been in touch to ask if it’s legal to record or broadcast themselves reading from a book and share the reading with a class, madrassas or on social media.
The sharing of material to the public online is an act protected by copyright. This means it is not legal to share published material online without the permission of the rights holder, i,e the publisher.
You must seek permission from the Publisher before you share any published material (including filmed readings, podcast recordings and pages copied from a book) with the public. You can still be breaking copyright laws if you share material with a small audience such as a Facebook group, an online classroom or a mailing list. Guidelines adapted from the Scottish Book Trust.
