Online/Virtual Read-Aloud Permissions
Temporary Guidelines

Updated Jan 11, 2022

Crabtree Publishing Company is dedicated to supporting our education community as we navigate uncertain service challenges. We realize that librarians, teachers, homeeducators
and parents are actively looking to provide reading resources for their students and community in an effort to keep them learning and reading. Virtual sharing through story time and online read-alouds provide that solution.

At this time, Crabtree is granting open permission to those individuals wishing to use our books in a virtual online setting to extend learning and engagement through read-alouds.
We commend those individuals who have committed their efforts to furthering the education of their students and community during this time of uncertainty. It’s wonderful to see individuals coming together, in a virtual manner, to enrich their communities, with
the love of books and reading!

Teachers, librarians, home-educators and parents may use any Crabtree Publishing title in a read-along for non-commercial use until April 2022 as follows:

• At the beginning of the recording/live video, please indicate that you are reading
with permission from Crabtree Publishing and reference the author.
