Inspire Children To Read In National Bookstart Week

There will be a chance to join during National Bookstart week from for pre-school storytime sessions with a special ‘Under the Sea’ theme.

On Thursday 9 June at Library from 10.30AM the free session which is completely free, will include a reading of the children’s book “A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea”, featuring amazing and fascinating sea creatures. The book is based on the traditional song, with each verse introducing a new creature.

Booktrust have partnered with publisher Barefoot Books to produce a special booklet edition of A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea, adapted by Jessica Law and beautifully illustrated by Jill McDonald, which will be gifted to children attending a special Bookstart Week storytime session.

Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture, said;

“Reading every day is the main message behind National Bookstart Week. Sharing stories, books and rhymes can transform a child’s life, while building skills and a life-long love of reading.”

“As little as ten minutes reading a day can help children bond with family, make sense of their world and get them ready for school.”

“With thousands of beautiful books, all available to borrow at no cost, there’s never been a better reason for your family to join free of charge this Bookstart Week!”

“And if your child has deposited their library book down the back of the sofa, there are no fines for children’s books returned late!”
