Wokingham Borough Libraries Bookstart Rhymetime will be visiting California Country Park on Wednesday July 11, 2018
The theme of this year’s National Bookstart Celebrations is ‘Bookstart Bird Boogie’. Children who attend any of the events will receive a free copy of the picture book A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins gifted by the children’s reading charity BookTrust, supported by Walker Children’s Books.
National Bookstart Week is an annual celebration of 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 ten minutes a day.
