East Riding Libraries are encouraging families across the region to celebrate the bedtime story and reading together.
They want families to join them in this year’s Pyjamarama, an event organised by the BookTrust that takes place on Friday 1 May.
Pyjamarama was due to be held in schools in June. However, as a result of the current situation, the event has been moved as most children are at home.
It will be a day that families across the area can join in a festival of story-filled fun at home.
East Riding Libraries say that there will be plenty of activities and events for children to take part in. However, the only requirement is that they are done in pyjamas.
To make things even more fun, PJ Masks, Horrid Henry and Tracy Beaker will be on board.
They will be helping out and providing extra ideas and activities for a brilliant day in pyjamas on Friday, 1 May.
Sign Up Online By Visting The Pyjamarama Web Site
To take part, sign up to the Pyjamarama website. You will receive the Pyjamarama newsletter, packed full of info about the day. You will also get a sneak peek at the line-up of story-filled fun.
Furthermore, some of the nation’s best-loved authors, illustrators and well-known faces will put together an exciting day of live events. They will also be in their pyjamas.
Those taking part are also being asked to share pictures or stories about the day using the hashtag #Pyjamarama.
East Riding Libraries will add to the fun by posting ‘Did you Know’ facts throughout the day on their social media.
For example: Did you know that, when babies look at high contrast and black and white images, it helps their eye muscles to strengthen and coordinate, and helps the brain to function properly?
