This is a superb article that I found late because our school has innovated to do just what you have suggested above - read sections or full parts of books to share with parents and children in a closed film online. 

Is there a more up to date sense of how publishers are responding to Covid and copyright?

I also found this today as our mother (or guardian) and toddler group at church (in England) has a story time and I would value any advice/experience in this sector (not being strictly the education sector), as to best practice that I as a trustee can pass on / insist on !

Hi Peter,

Thanks for getting in touch! As mentioned in the blog it is not good practice to livestream readings of books and we always recommend seeking permission from the rightsholders when in doubt.

We have two other blogs that touch on this matter, that you might find useful:
