National Bookstart Week

Rumble in the Jungle and Cerrie BurnellJoin the fun as we swing into jungle reading adventures from Monday 8 to Sunday 14 June 2015...

Rumble in the Jungle will be our free gift booklet!

We’re thrilled that a special Bookstart booklet of Giles Andreae’s beloved picture book will be given to each child who attends a National Bookstart Week event!

In other exciting news: children's author and TV presenter, Cerrie Burnell, has recorded the voiceover for our Rumble in the Jungle online storybook, which will go live in June!

Reading every day is the message behind National Bookstart Week. Getting into the habit of sharing stories, books and rhymes every day (even for just 10 minutes) shows children that reading is a fun activity, while helping them bond with family, understand their world and get ready for school and beyond.
