Rumble in the jungle for young readers

June 5, 2015

Young readers will be going on a jungle adventure during National Bookstart Week, which begins on Monday (8 June).

 

Wolverhampton's libraries are supporting the annual event aimed at pre-school children and their families, with a host of jungle-themed events featuring Bookstart Bear taking place around the city.

 

The free programme begins with a Baby Book Time and craft session at East Park Library on Monday from 10am-11am. On Tuesday, there's a Baby Book Time at Central Library from 10.15am-11.15am and Story Time at Warstones Library from 2.30pm-3pm.

 

Bilston Library hosts a Story Time on Wednesday from 11am-11.30am, and there's a special Bookstart promotion at the Civic Centre from 2pm-4.30pm where a children's librarian will be on hand with giveaways and answering any questions people may have.

 

Finchfield Library will be holding a Story Time on Thursday from 2.30pm-3pm and the week concludes on Friday with a Baby Book Time at Springvale Library from 10.15am-11am and Story Time at Low Hill Library from 2.30pm-3pm.

There will also be a special Bookstart display at the Civic Centre from Monday to Thursday.

 

Councillor Elias Mattu, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for Adults, said: "National Bookstart Week is all about highlighting the importance of sharing books, rhymes and stories with young children – and developing a lifelong love of reading at an early age.

 

"Getting into the habit of sharing stories, books and rhymes every day, even if only for 10 minutes, can transform a child's life and also improve the bond between parents and their sons and daughters."
