About Global StoryMakers
How it Works
Obtaining dual language books is easy with Global StoryMakers.
To BUY a book, search by language, age group go to our bookstore to buy a book. It will be printed by the closest printer and sent directly to you.
For BULK purchases of books for schools or children’s organizations, click here and tell us which book you want, how many and in what languages.
To TRANSLATE a book, click on the book you want to translate using the “translate” button and it takes you to a site where you can enter the translation you need. When you are done, just buy the book and it will be printed by the closest printer and sent directly to you. If you want to ADD your translated book to our bookstore, forward a copy of your confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org and put in the subject line “Please verify translation into (language) and add to bookstore.”
Please add your name and contact information to the body of the email so we can contact you. If yours is the first verified translation, it will be added to the bookstore and you will receive a small royalty when someone buys that book – the publisher receives the bulk of the royalty.
To JOIN our community of storytellers, please click here. We look forward to creating books for children about their own world to share with others through our online network of writers, illustrators and translators. Be part of this global effort to bring literacy to all children, everywhere.
To CREATE your own book, especially with a child, go to rescuewriting.org to begin creating a book in our pre-made templates – just add photos or drawings and your own story. This is a wonderful and rewarding exercise with a classroom, where each child has their own chapter in a storybook. When you are done, just buy the book and it will be printed by the closest printer and sent directly to you.
