How Bookstart benefits children
Sharing books with babies and toddlers is a wonderful way to
increase language skills.
Babies and toddlers who love books begin reading sooner and have
a better chance at school.
Bookstart Bear Club
The Bookstart Bear Club is a free membership reward scheme for
babies, toddlers and pre-schooler's.
Each child receives a Bookstart Bear Club passport. When
books are borrowed from the library children receive a
stamp in this passport.
After six stamps they receive a beautiful certificate.
There are 10 to collect.
