It’s Bookstart Week and and our library storytimes are celebrating. The theme this year is Heroes and there is a free copy of Super Duck by Jez Alborough for all the children who visit a storytime this week. There will be super-hero crafts too and there is lots more to explore online at the Bookstart website
Bookstart is challenging parents to be Reading Heroes by sharing a book with their children every night during Bookstart Week. Early reading makes a real difference to children: helping them to develop language skills and logic, preparing them for school, helping them bond with parents. The benefits are real and lasting – and it’s fun too. There’s an article here on how it works for more detailed information. Can you be a Reading Hero this week and help more children to enjoy sharing a story?
