Your child has just received their Bookbuzz book!
And here’s why...
Our school is taking part in BookTrust’s Bookbuzz programme, which aims to get children reading. Your child chose their own book to keep out of the seventeen Bookbuzz titles, discovering what gets them turning the page at school and at home.
Bookbuzz is run by BookTrust, the UK’s largest children’s reading charity that transforms lives by getting children and families reading. Each year BookTrust reaches 3.9 million children across the UK with books, resources and support to help deliver a love of reading. To find out more about BookTrust visit booktrust.org.uk.
We know that some children will be facing extra challenges this year after the coronavirus outbreak. We hope that Bookbuzz will encourage your child to read more frequently, which will help improve their wellbeing, spark interesting conversations and inspire creativity.
Here are three steps you can take to get involved:
- Get talking! The easiest way to get involved is to talk to your child about books and reading. Their Bookbuzz book is a great place to start. What do they enjoy about their book? Who is their favourite character? Talking about books together can help show the value of reading and encourage your child to form and share their opinions on what they like to read.
- Find out more. You can find lots on the BookTrust website to share and enjoy with your child, helping them to discover more about their Bookbuzz book. There are videos and blogs from the Bookbuzz authors, quizzes, competitions and more at booktrust.org.uk/bookbuzz.
- What next? The adventure continues when your child finishes their Bookbuzz book!No matter what their interests, there are thousands of fantastic books out there to discover. To find their next read you can ask a librarian, visit a local book shop, or go to BookTrust’s Bookfinder at booktrust.org.uk/bookfinder.
