The Creative Commons open license we use means that anyone can re-use and re-share Book Dash books on their platforms free of charge, increasing global access to quality children’s books.
This expands the reach and impact of our books exponentially: We know of over 100 re-use cases of Book Dash books and millions of reads and downloads of our books weekly through partners! Adaptations range from audioversions, animations, featuring the books in free-reading libraries online and using them in printed curriculum materials. In this way, the books reach children and families globally, from Lagos to Laos and more.
Closer to home, we partner with a number of local reading platforms, promotion organisations as well as Moya’s data-free messenger all with the aim of reducing barriers to great books for South Africa’s children.

“When I was trying to get a good source of reading I barely found any for a beginner…then I found your app. [Reading the books] not only improved her reading skills, but also her confidence and that’s when we thought we could share it with kids by reading aloud.”Ruth’s KidAdventure
“I am very grateful that I could start my multi-lingual picture book app BookaBooka off with some publicly available content! I was amazed with the quality of the illustrations of some of the books. The ability to change the pictures and the story itself was key in being able to use this content. Thank you for this broad license. “Sjors Miltenburg,
“The creche organisations are almost never in a position to buy reading materials for their children and if they are, they would normally only buy one teacher copy which the children might not even touch. To be able to give out these books is such an essential part of the child’s educational development and we are so grateful to be involved in the distribution.”Alison Zikala,
