Bookstart aim to provide a free pack of books to every baby and toddler in the UK, to inspire, stimulate and create a love of reading that will give all children a real flying start in life. But most of all, we want to show that books are fun!

A baby pack is gifted to all babies at around 6 to 9 months and an early years pack to all toddlers at around two years old. Packs are gifted by Health Visitors.

If you haven't received a pack for your child please contact your Health Visitor or your local library.

Listen to Welsh rhymes and songs

Bookstart, Swansea Libraries, Menter Iaith and Language and Play worked together to produce Welsh Language music to be used by childcare providers and other groups working with the under 5s in Swansea.
