1-31 October. Celebrate stories with under-fives.

October is our month for Reading in the Early Years.

Celebrate stories and books for babies and toddlers.  Why not hold some special bedtime story events in your setting or organisation?

Reception classes in primary schools could hold pyjama parties and encourage reading at bedtime. 

For ideas of books and activities see www.wordsforlife.org.uk/3-5

7-13 October is also Libraries Week. You can contact your local library to arrange a visit for parents and tots to enjoy rhymes and stories, and get their very first library card!  Email us (reading@vivacity.org) to organise a library visit. At these events your toddlers will also receive a free story booklet to keep.
