Bulwell MP set to launch Book week

Bulwell MP Graham Allen will be kicking off National Bookstart week by joining a group of toddlers at the library tomorrow.

Totstimes, which will be held at the Riverside at 11am on 7th June will mark the beginning of Bookstart Week.

This is an annual celebration of the flagship reading programme from national charity, Booktrust.

Bookstart aims to help every child develop a lifelong love of reading by gifting free books to every child.

Totstimes with rhymes, singing and stories for babies and toddlers take place every Monday 10.30-11am with support from Bulwell Children’s Centre and every other Saturday 11-11.30am.

“All the research shows that reading together strengthens family bonds,” said Graham Allen.

Totstime in Bulwell will be the start of a week of activities across the city. For more information visit: www.bookstart.org.uk.
