We’re very excited to let you know that there will soon be a new interactive story book on the Booktime website, to mark the delivery of this year’s free book packs in England.
From October through to early December, we’ll be delivering a free book pack to almost 700,000 children starting primary school in reception class, as well as sending out packs for children who aren’t accessing mainstream education.
Last week we recorded the reading of this year’s picture book from Warne, The Tale of a Naughty Little Rabbit. Our celebrity reader has recorded a wonderful reading for us, capturing all the humour, excitement and charm of this year’s book based on Beatrix Potter’s original tale of Peter Rabbit.
Who was this celebrity reader? Keep an eye on our Twitter feed, and when we launch the new online book you might just be the first to know - @booktimetweets
In the meantime, why not have a listen to Lenny Henry’s fantastic reading of last year’s story book, ‘Tinga Tinga Tales – Why Elephant has a Trunk’?
