Wiltshire Council libraries are celebrating National Bookstart Week with rhyme times and other free fun activities to encourage families to read together.
The event, from 4-10 June, is an annual project launched by the reading charity, BookTrust. It gives every child in the country a free reading pack in the first year of their life and again when they are 3-4.
Wiltshire Council’s Library Services run Bookstart in the county, ensuring that every child receives their book pack.
The theme this year is Bookstart Bird Boogie.
Children who attend library activities will receive a free copy of the picture book A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins. There are also activity sheets for children.
Many libraries will feature Bookstart Bird Boogie themes in their regular rhyme times.
