Baby Babble – Bedtime Stories

Written by Katherine Graham, Nicola Smith (illustrator) and Sarah Slater (designer)

Baby’s day is full of babble, whether she’s hungry, searching for her dummy, splashing in the bath or curled up in bed at night.

Why Book Dash?

Children in South Africa need more bedtime stories and books for kids, but they cost too much purchased from publishers. The cheapest books have no publisher – then the only cost is printing. So our participants do the work of publishers in a single day. After that, anyone can get print runs sponsored and put finished books into the hands of children.

We believe every child should own a hundred books by the age of five. In South Africa, that means giving 600 million free books to children who could never afford to buy them. Every day we lose, more children grow up unable to read and write well, and to enjoy the worlds that books open up.
