Toddlers learning love of reading with Bookstart

Have your say

ALMOST all babies and toddlers in Hucknall and the rest of Nottinghamshire are benefitting from the national Bookstart scheme aimed at encouraging a love of reading.

The initiative provides youngsters with a free pack, including books appropriate for their age. The scheme reached 99.4% of babies born in the county last year.

Packs for children aged 18 to 30 months reached 95.5% of eligible toddlers and Bookstart ‘treasure chest packs’ reached 99.8% of all eligible three-year-olds.
