National Bookstart Week is an annual celebration of BookTrust’s flagship reading programme, Bookstart.

Bookstart gives every child in England and Wales a free reading pack in the first year of their life and again when they are 3-4 years old.

The theme of this year’s National Bookstart Week is ‘Bookstart Bird Boogie’.

Children who attend any of the events will receive a free copy of the picture book A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins.
