Hillingdon Libraries are celebrating National Bookstart Week 2018! This annual event celebrates the BookTrust’s flagship reading programme, Bookstart. Bookstart gives every child in England and Wales a free reading pack in the first year of their life and again when they are 3-4 years old. BookTrust works to remind families of the importance of reading for pleasure – even if it’s just for 10 minutes a day.
Every year has a different theme and 2018 is the year of the ‘Bookstart Bird Boogie’!
Hillingdon Libraries will be joining in the fun with special themed Storytimes across our libraries as well exclusive National Bookstart Week giveaways. Click here to find your nearest storytime and join in the fun!
There’s also colouring pages, book lists, rhyme sheets and headbands to download at https://www.booktrust.org.uk/supporting-you/practitioners/our-programmes/bookstart/national-bookstart-week-2018/national-bookstart-week-2018-resources/
