Bookstart Corner

Bookstart is run by BookTrust, which is the largest reading charity in the UK.

Bookstart gifts free books and Bookstart packs (click here for more information) to all children at two key ages before school to help families read together every day and inspire children with a rewarding love of books, and the Children's Centre distributes to our children as part of the scheme.

Parents and carers can sign up to Bookstart (click here to subscribe) to receive regular emails with lots of reading ideas, activities and competitions every month. Bookstart say that “from tots to teens, we’re all about helping children discover a love of reading, and the emails are a quick and easy way to get inspired … you might even win something!”
