Back the Book with The Bookstart Bear

THE Bookstart Bear visited Thurrock last week as part of National Bookstart Week.

Special story times organised by Thurrock Council’s library service were held in libraries, children’s centres and the Thameside Nature Park and High House Production Park.

More than a hundred children and 80 adults greeted the blue bear and collected their free Super Duck book by Jez Alborough.

Bookstart Bear also gave out free treasure bags (available in all libraries) for three-year-olds and encouraged parents of under-fives to join their children in the library’s Bookstart Bear club.
