Book start week

First published in Headlines by

PRE-SCHOOL children and their parents or carers, can help celebrate National Bookstart Week this week by taking part in a Hero Hunt and enjoying special story and rhyme times at Wiltshire libraries.

Booktrust is calling for all parents and carers in Wiltshire to don their superhero masks, reveal their secret powers and go to the library with their children.

A special version of Super Duck, by popular children’s author Jez Alborough, will be a free gift for children who take part. This lively story follows the heroic Super Duck as he strives to rescue his friend Frog from an unplanned flight on a wayward kite.

A free event is being held at Salisbury Library on Thursday with the launch of the Bear Club Challenge, where children can go along between 11am and 11.30am to make a superhero mask and search for the missing frog.
