There’s a Rang-tan in My Bedroom - digital pack


There’s a Rang-Tan in My Bedroom is based on the Greenpeace film that became a viral sensation, about a little girl who discovers a mischievous orangutan on the loose in her bedroom, and she can’t understand why it keeps shouting OOO! at her shampoo and her chocolate. But when Rang-tan explains that there are humans running wild in her rainforest, burning down trees so they can grow palm oil to put in products, the little girl knows what she has to do: help save the orangutans!

Published in collaboration with Greenpeace, featuring a foreword from Dame Emma Thompson and brought to life by award-winning illustrator Frann Preston-Gannon, this is a very special picture book with a vital message to share.

Hachette Children’s Group would love for libraries to get involved this autumn, encouraging young children to think about the plight of the orangutan and the dangers of deforestation and how they can make a difference with this timely and beautiful picture book.

The free downloadable digital resources include:
- KS1 Curriculum Linked Notes
- KS2 Curriculum Linked Notes
- Assembly Ideas
- Booklist
- Certificate
- Classroom Poster
- Campaign Letter
- Draw Rang-tan’s Home
- Quiz Sheet
- Reward Chart

You can find all of the digital resources here.

We would love to see you enjoying the pack on social media. You can do this by using the hashtag #Theresarangtaninmybedroom and tagging HachetteKids and readingagency


Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
