What is Bookstart

Bookstart is a national programme that encourages parents and carers to enjoy books with children from an early age.

Bookstart aims to provide a free pack of books to every baby in the UK - to inspire, stimulate and create a love of reading. 

Visit the Bookstart website for more details.

The packs contain a free book and guidance material for parents and carers and information about local libraries.
