Pyjamarama in Wales

We’ll be celebrating the magic of the bedtime story across Wales with our new Pyjamarama campaign from 3-9 June.

We’re working with libraries, childcare settings and other partners across the country to host some very special Pyjamarama storytimes – and pyjama parties!

Dad and kids reading Welsh-English version of Car Car Truck Jeep

Families will be able to pick up a free copy of one of our favourite books to share - Dacw’r Car yn Dŵad/ Car, Car, Truck, Jeep by Katrina Charman and Nick Sharratt, in a brand-new Welsh adaptation by Aneirin Karadog.

We’ll also have free activities to enjoy, including a bedtime-themed rhyme sheet and a special starry craft activity to make with little ones.

To help you get ready for Pyjamarama, we’ve got lots of resources right here on the website, from posters and event ideas to colouring sheets and rhymes to share.

We look forward to seeing you at a Pyjamarama celebration very soon!
