National Bookstart Week

  1st June 2018

National Bookstart Week is BookTrust's annual celebration of the joys and benefits of sharing books, stories and rhymes from as early an age as possible. This year, National Bookstart Week will take place from 4-10 June and the theme is Bookstart Bird Boogie.

The chosen book is A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins, published by Walker Books. It's a brilliant book to read aloud - full of actions to do and noises to make. BookStart has teamed up with Ore Oduba to bring you a brilliant, action-packed storytime video of A Busy Day for Birds.

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.
