National Bookstart Week
1st June 2016
The theme for this year's event is 'under the sea' and the chosen book is Jessica Law and Jill McDonald's A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea. A special booklet of this title has been produced and the BookTrust will give a copy to every child who attends a National Bookstart Week event.
Reading every day is the message behind National Bookstart Week. Getting into the habit of sharing stories, books and rhymes every day (even for just 10 minutes) shows children that reading is a fun activity, while helping them bond with family, understand their world and get ready for school and beyond.
