Gecko Press has close relationships with some individual schools and libraries. We work together to develop fun writing activities and competitions, we invite school groups to special events, we even occasionally host visits in our office from small groups of big readers.

If you love our books and have ideas for how we could work together, we would love to hear from you!

Teacher notes that don't kill the book

Gecko Press teacher notes

Many Gecko Press books come with teacher notes. They are written by teachers for teachers, and aimed to be open and active. Here you will find good ways to work with individual titles in the classroom – other than reading aloud, which is the biggest treat.

This is an opportunity for schools, early childhood centres and other related organisations to raise money at fairs and events with a pack of 25 books for $50.

The books are chosen by us at Gecko Press, from our overstock or books that have a tiny defect so we don’t sell them at full price.
