Educator Services

The Flying Pig loves working with schools, helping teachers and librarians find the best books for curriculum needs, running curated in-store book fairs, giving lively book talks to students in schools and at the store*, and bringing fantastic authors to your schools.

*Email flyingpigevents@gmail.com to discuss virtual event options for your school or library during COVID-19, and to be added to our monthly educator email.

Professional Consultation

Owner Elizabeth Bluemle has a master's degree from the Bank Street College of Education and was an elementary school teacher and librarian before becoming a bookseller. She has more than 30 years' expertise in the field of children's books.


We offer educators and administrators 20% off regular school purchases and 10% off personal purchases. Extra discounts are available on multiple copies of the same title, and on purchases over $1000. Shipping is free, and we offer free drop-off service on qualifying orders. We accept P.O.s.

To apply for educator discounts for your school or library, please fill out and email our "Educator Brochure" (see below) to flyingpigorders@gmail.com with "Educator Discounts" in the subject header. 


Because we don’t have to go through corporate headquarters, we can place orders daily. This means that, in most cases, your books will arrive one to five days after ordering.*

*Customers may experience some delays in ordering due to COVID-19. We thank you for your patience and support!



How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.

If you have further questions, please email us at flyingpigorders@gmail.com!
