Hire the Bookstart Bear

The Bookstart Bear
The Bookstart Bear

Hire the Bookstart Bear costume for free – perfect for events at your library or children's centre.

If you have a special rhymetime session, the launch of a local reading campaign or any other suitable event coming up, why not invite the Bear along?

The Bookstart Bear makes a big impact on everyone when he appears at Bookstart events. He represents the sheer joy and fun of sharing books and rhymes and helps to promote the Bookstart brand in a very visual way. Not only that, but he also provides a great photo opportunity for any local press you've attracted!


If you want to book the Bear for your event, please contact your Bookstart Coordinator.

Please give plenty of notice as the costume is very popular and may not be available when you need it. Book Trust always holds a special draw for the Bear for National Bookstart Week as this is a very popular time.
