National Bookstart Week: 2-11 June 2017

National Bookstart Week is BookTrust’s annual event celebrating the joys and benefits of sharing books, stories and rhymes with children from an early age. Reading together every day (even for just 10 minutes) can be lots of fun and can significantly help with a child’s development.

This years theme is:  “Let’s Explore Outdoors”.
