Yoto, the audio platform for kids behind the critically acclaimed and award-winning Yoto Player, has announced its partnership with Puffin, a leading children’s publisher and part of Penguin Random House UK. In joining forces, Yoto will support Puffin on its Puffin World of Stories initiative, which is run in partnership with the National Literacy Trust, by donating 90 Yoto Players, Card Cases and Card sets to primary schools across the country.
Puffin World of Stories inspires children to discover a love of reading by giving primary schools in disadvantaged communities the tools they need to reinvigorate their libraries and encourage reading for pleasure, through free books and resources. This is more important than ever given the ongoing disruption to education caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the adverse impact this has had on the access to books for some of the most disadvantaged children in society.
2021 is the third year of the initiative and adds another 85 schools to the programme. Puffin World of Stories will so far have worked with a total of 224 schools and 56,000 pupils by the end of this academic year. The new partnership with Yoto adds further to this figure, enabling a new and portable way for children to enjoy audiobooks as part of their World of Stories reading space.

Is There Life on Your Nose?, Christian Borstlap
From cheese to poo, recycling to evolution, this playful, informative picture book helps kids get acquainted with the microbes that make up every part of our daily life. Germs, microbes, bacteria – these days those words are fraught with fear and uncertainty. But they’re not all bad. In fact, most of them make life and nature possible.
Christian Borstlap’s playful, boldly coloured illustrations and cheerful text will help kids understand that microbes are everywhere, in our noses and tummies, in the food we eat, in the air we breathe. From the world’s largest organism in Oregon’s Blue Mountains to the bacteria that started life on earth and from microbes that help recycle plastic to yeast that makes bread taste good, this book shows the incredible diversity of these tiny beings and how they affect every aspect of our lives.
Borstlap uses both science and humour to demystify a potentially scary subject, and closes with double-page spreads that are packed with information to satisfy the most curious readers.
