Project Benefits


The Dynamite Book Project and the the resulting Tiny Tales Book series have much to offer not only the student, but also, their school and their community. Here’s how:

Benefits for The School

EDUCATION: The process of creating this book incorporates many of the Prescribed Learning Outcomes issued by the Province of British Columbia’s Ministry of Education. This assignment fits perfectly into the language arts curriculum for each grade (K­7) as it allows for flexibility and varying expectations. This project based literacy program provides a shared learning experience and an opportunity to engage the students in a meaningful and rewarding activity. Your students could be published authors!

FUNDRAISING: The school receives a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every book. Since books are sold at school in the community and soon, nationwide, fundraising opportunities are considerable and ongoing. Schools also have the opportunity to hold a raffle for a special edition copy of the book and a limited edition print, signed by the guest photographer. Our parent company, Big Heart Publishing Inc. donates the marketing materials and raffle prizes, free of charge.

SCHOOL PRIDE: Students take pride in creating a book that can be shared with classmates, their families and their communities. While teachers can be proud of the legacy they’ve helped to create.

Benefits for the Students

Students have the opportunity to laugh, learn and create while at the same time, building a legacy for themselves, their school and their community. Without artistic bounds, students can choose an image and spin a tale of the fantastic. They feel a true sense of accomplishment and take pride in their work.


Benefits for Parents and the Community

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS: When parents, families and local businesses purchase books from the Dynamite Book Project, they find that its a great way to give back. The books make great gifts and the single stories, ready for framing, make students proud when they are displayed at home.

COMMUNITY PRIDE: Participating schools are featured on the DBP website, acknowledging the students for their work, and the school and the community for their support.

Fundraising is a key aspect of The Dynamite Book Project.

Funds for schools are generated in two ways:

  • A portion of the proceeds from ongoing book sales from the Tiny Tales Book Series are donated directly to the school.
  • Schools hold raffles for a special edition copy of their book, provided by our parent company, Big Heart Publishing. We also provide the marketing materials for raffles at no cost and the school keeps 100% of raffle proceeds.


Partial proceeds from book sales are donated back to schools or charities of the schools choice
