Time To Read for Reception aged children

Every Reception aged child in England will receive a free book to take home this autumn.

The Bumblebear by Nadia Shireen is the latest free book from Booktrust for Reception aged children in England. It’s all about a sneaky bear called Norman who hatches a cunning plot to trick the bees and steal their honey! With an amusing plot and lovable characters, this book is an absolute delight for 4 – 5 year olds. Click here to watch Nadia Shireen read The Bumblebear.

Finding the time to read together as a family can have dramatic effects on a child’s wellbeing and development. Children are more likely to read if they love books, and they’re more likely to love books if families have fun reading together. Plus, research shows that a child who reads for fun will do better at school, even in subjects like maths.

We will be delivering your school’s Time to Read packs during the autumn term.
