The theme for BookTrust’s National Bookstart Week 2018 is Bookstart Bird Boogie with a beautiful book, A Busy Day for Birds, written and illustrated by Lucy Cousins.

Swindon Libraries will be joining in celebrations during rhyme and story times in your local library. They will be gifting some beautiful books and craft activities (while stock lasts).

This year’s theme provides the perfect opportunity to share books, stories and rhymes about birds and wildlife, with lots of fun, interaction and movement.

Bookstart Bear will also be making an appearance during pop up story times outside library buildings across Swindon.

On Monday 4thJune, 10:10 – 11:00 they will be visiting Busy Fingers at the Haydon Centre, 12:30 – 13:30 at the Giraffe in the Outlet Centre and in the afternoon 14:20 – 15:10 Kidz About in the Brunel Centre.

That week the Bookstart Bear will also be visiting, during a pop up story time at, The Harbour Project.

This year’s resources include a video reading of A Busy Day for Birds (including British Sign Language)
