Why Book Dash?

Children in South Africa need more 5 minute bedtime stories free and children’s books, 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.

Book Dash 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.

Bedtime Stories with Tardy is a collection bedtime stories from Tardy and his friends including great stories such as Sing to Me and Babble Babble and classic fairy tales such as Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Marvellous Musician as well as 5 minute bedtime stories to help you get your child or children to sleep.
