Sharing books, stories and rhymes with your child from an early age can help create a lifelong reader. Bookstart is here to guide you on your child’s reading journey from 0-5 years.
Every child in England and Wales is entitled to a free Bookstart pack before they are 12 months old and again aged 3-4 years (27 months in Wales). Bookstart also gifts additional needs packs for babies and toddlers, as well as black-and-white booklets for newborns and dual language books.
Find out how you can get your packs and explore our website. You'll find interactive storybooks and games, themed booklists, a bookfinder to give you inspiration, activities to make and do at home and much more.
