Covid19 Permissons for Educators

Dear Educators and Parents,

In recent weeks, I have received hundreds of requests regarding the use of my books during this time of quarantine and distance learning. Please understand that even though the copyright is in my name, my publisher holds and protects the copyright as long as the books are in print.

My publisher, Scholastic, has generously put in place some allowances. They have granted a limited read-aloud permission until June 30, 2020. And a daily curriculum for teachers and parents to assist with schooling, if needed.

At this time, due to copyright laws, there are no allowances for PDFs of my titles, scanning and posting books, or scanning and printing pages. Thank you for respecting this.

Companies such as Overdrive, Hoopla, Bibliotheca, and others who distribute digital content for schools and libraries, can assist you in acquiring classroom ebooks and audiobooks. I hope this is helpful to you.

I am so grateful that you continue to introduce my books to your wonderful readers!

With great respect for all you do for our nation’s children,
Pam Muñoz Ryan
