Bookstart is a national programme that offers free books to children inspiring a lifelong love of reading. Two packs are on offer:
Pack 1 is given out at the first home visit of the Health Visitor when the child is a few days old. A health visitor will normally issue you with the pack. However, if you are unable to get your pack from the health visitor, please contact your local library to collect a pack.
Pack 2, My Treasure Pack, is given out to children at their school nursery or equivalent pre-school setting at 36 - 48 months.
Any eligible child who does not attend a pre-school group can obtain a pack by contacting their local library.
