Bear's Reading Adventure FREE BOOK & STICKERS
Collect the ten stickers
Children can collect a missing object sticker every time they visit the library and put them in the special sticker book to take home. It's the perfect reason to visit the library more often and get children loving libraries and books.
When children have collected all ten stickers, they can download or print a certificate that celebrates their achievement. There's also a make-a-bookmark activity sheet you can download and colour in, too.
A good reason to read
Produced by BookTrust, in partnership with Igloo Books, Bear's Reading Adventure is illustrated by Jo Byatt and written by BookTrust's director of engagement and marketing, Gemma Malley, who says:
'Libraries are a wonderful resource, whatever your age. If you haven't joined your local library or visited for a while, then do take a moment to see what's going on. Reading with your child is fun and a great way to spend time together. If a parent reads to their children every day they will be almost 12 months ahead of their age group when they start school. Even reading to them three to five times a week gives them a six-month head-start over those who are read to less often.'
And Bookstart Coordinator Deborah Averill thinks the sticker book is a great way to encourage children to love their library:
'The quality of the book is fantastic, and children will love visiting the library to collect their stickers. A great incentive - and it's fun, too!'
