Step one - Bookstart Baby

The Bookstart Baby pack contains two board books and other goodies for babies aged 0 to 12 months.

  • Share books every day for just a few minutes
  • Point to the pictures and talk about the story
  • Join in at a session for under 5s at a library near you
  • Babies can join the library as soon as they are born - There is no charge for damage to books. It is all absolutely free.

The Bookstart Books for Babies pack is delivered by health visitors when they do the initial home visit after your baby has been born. Health visitors usually get in touch about two weeks after the birth of your baby to arrange this visit. If you did not receive a pack from your health visitor, please email your local bookstart co-ordinator.
