Bookstart (Reading)

Bookstart supports you to enjoy books with your child from as early an age as possible. Bookstart offers the gift of free books to all children at two key ages before they start school, to inspire a love of reading that will give children a flying start in life. Bookstart Baby packs are gifted via your health visitor or can be collected from any Reading Borough library. The Treasure packs, for ages 3-4, are delivered to early years settings across the Borough. Please contact us if your child has not received their pack. Also available are packs for children with additional needs and some dual language books. Information, support and guidance together with lots of interesting hints and tips about reading with your child can be found at www.bookstart.org.uk.
