 Lewisham Bookstart

Lewisham Bookstart

Bookstart is a national programme that encourages all parents and carers to enjoy books with their children from as early an age as possible.

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

Here in Lewisham, you can collect your Bookstart and Bookstart + packs from your health visitor at your child's 7-9 month and two year developmental checks. If you miss out on your pack at either of these checks, you can collect one from any Lewisham Library.
