Babies and toddlers

Bookstart book packs for babies

Your child is eligible for free Bookstart packs to encourage you to share books with your child and develop a love of books and reading. Packs for babies age 0-12 months will be given out by the register office when you register the birth, or can be obtained from your health visitor.

They are also entitled to a pack at 3 years of age when they enter a nursery setting. Or you can collect any of these packs at your local library or Children's Centres if you have not received one.

The very interactive Booktrust website has more information on the packs as well as activities you and your child can do together.
