Bookstart Week Storytimes and Rhymetimes at Wokingham Borough Libraries

bok12National Bookstart Week is an annual celebration of Book Trust’s flagship reading programme, Bookstart. It aims to reinforce to families the importance of getting in to the habit of reading every day – even if it’s just for ten minutes.This year’s theme, Under the Sea, is based on “A hole in the bottom of the sea” adapted Jessica Law and illustrated by Jill McDonald, which will be given away to families.  From 6-12 June there will be thousands of free events around the country for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and their families, at libraries, children centres, nurseries and bookshops. Events will include stories, rhymes and lots of fun activities to inspire families to read together.
