These interactive sessions are designed to develop a love of books and reading in children.

They are a wonderful, safe and welcoming environment for children to learn to interact with other children and develop important social skills and self regulation. They are a perfect activity for you both to enjoy quality time together.

You will meet other parents/carers from your local community and will take some great ideas to continue the learning and sharing with your little one. For parents and children aged three to five years.

Check out our storytime tips for some ideas that you can use with your little one at home.
