Bookstart offers the gift of free books to all children at key ages before they start school, to inspire a love of reading that will give children a flying start in life.
The Bookstart website provides parents and carers with information about receiving your packs, activities to do with your children, events happening in your area and a range of other resources to help you enjoy sharing books with your child.
We believe children are never too young to start loving books!
