In 2012-13, every child starting reception class in England and Wales will receive a free Booktime book pack. What are you doing in your school to celebrate?
Booktime is the national free books programme for reception-aged children. We provide a free book pack for every child aged 4-5 years to share and enjoy with their family and friends. This year, we are delivering 1,380,000 books: two for every single child starting school in England and Wales.
