Calling all families of pre-schoolers! From October, you can take part in BookTrust Storytime.
There are six shortlisted titles for the BookTrust Storytime Prize and families are encouraged to read the stories together.
There will be events in some libraries and the books will be available to borrow and read at home.
At Basildon or Clacton libraries, there will be extra goodies for children to collect during the sessions as well as the chance to take part in the national vote. Visit Basildon or Clacton to find out more!
You can also enjoy the authors reading their stories in a series of videos, provided by BookTrust.
Here in Essex, we are also encouraging families to take part in an Essex vote. This is for us to see which book is the most popular at each library and in Essex as a whole. You can cast your vote online, now.
