BookTrust for babies and treasures
If your kid becomes one, please check with your regional bookstart store to see if you have not yet got your Bookstart Babies package, or the Bookstart Treasure package before they turn five years old. If you are in England, your healthcare practitioner or another doctor should give this lilac purse to help you in your baby's first year to help you sharing your story, rhyme and song.
Contents vary, but will contain two boardbooks, a rhyming page and a brochure with hints and suggestions for the exchange of literature with the young. There is a photo album inside that you can easily exchange with others and a nice and helpful guide with hints and suggestions for other people. You may be able to get a copy in another country as part of your Bookstart package if English is not your first country.
Ask your healthcare attendee (babies) or your home librarian (preschoolers) to consult your bookstart coordinator. The Bookstart Corner is an add-on bookstart program offered solely by children's centers. Bookstart Edge Bundle contains two free textbooks and instructions for parent sharing games, novels, stories/ryms.
Inquire at your child care center whether you can take part in this program. It is important to remember that the textbooks included in the packages may differ from those shown.
