What exactly is Disney publishing worldwide? Bookdrive questions for GAD

We have two or three of us who are going to sign up for the book drive. It says any book published by Disney Publishing worldwide.

I have enough Disney books to use, but they are all published by different publishers. All are Disney though.

Is anyone else doing the book drive?

I also don't understand why they need customs forms if we are mailing them to Virginia.

Thanks,

Dawn

I don't understand what you are talking about. Book drive? Disney? Eh??? This is something for the Give a day thing? I'd love to know more..my closest volunteer place is 85 miles away and with no details..all to be announced.

I don't know anything about the book drive but I can answer questions about the Disney Publishing.
There is a publishing arm of Disney called Disney Publishing Worldwide. It is comprised of a number of imprints including Hyperion. I don't know the name of all of their imprints. But they publish a number of books. some related to disney (such as the hannah montana novelizations) but not all are related to disney properties/character, etc. Hyperion also publishes Mo Willems and the Percy Jackson books. These are all part of DIsney Publishing Worldwide.

But many of the books based on DIsney shows, movies, etc are licensed to other publishers. For instance the new Toy Story 3 books? They will be published by Random House. Random House has a licensing agreement with the DIsney movie company to exclusively publish these books. This is also true of the Disney Princess & The Frog books that recently came out.

Again i don't know anything about the book drive but I am 100% certain about the publishing info posted above. I have worked in the publishing industry for over 10 years.

Hope that this helps.

The book drive is part of the Give a Day program, yes. It is Called Story Time from the front lines.

It states in the approved book list that any books published by Disney Publishing Worldwide are acceptable.

I have a lot of Disney books but none say Hyperion or Disney Publishing Worldwide.....so these aren't acceptable?

I don't see a number to call and ask and I did a google search and it just says what the previous poster said.....so, there are indeed books that state clearly that it is from Disney Publishing Worldwide? How would I find a list by them online? I can't find anything!

Check out this link:
http://www.handsonnetwork.org/files/..._v12.28_MM.pdf

It gives more information about Story Times.....the reason you need the customs forms is that the books actually are sent to the USO centers and only the verification form goes to Virginia....and there are other books that are acceptable such as Dr Seuss and some others mentioned in the link.

Do the books have to be new or are gently used acceptable?

Where do you sign up for this one. None of the other GADs in our area are worth it. Many are during work hours or want a 24 hour commitment. We only need to get two this way, so 20 gently used books is doable.

UPDATE!:

I found the email address and just received a reply from the person running it. BTW: I haven't signed up yet, but I think she thinks I have....I do plan to sign at least 2 of us up for this.

here is the email:

Thank you very much for volunteering in this program. It is any Disney book with the Disney Logo on the front, or the books published by the other publishing houses (including the ones you mentioned) but copyrighted by Disney are acceptable. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Kindest Regards,

Alexandra

Same here..but, be aware that the Disney site says you must sign up throught them to get credit..which is interesting since you can't find out how to sign up
