On Saturday (28th June), Routes to Reading, a new initiative from Education Umbrella aimed at parents is celebrating its launch with a fantastic free event in @ Bristol Science Museum: Little-Readers-Flyer

The Little Readers’ Day Out is a free event aimed at helping parents to get the most out of reading books with their babies and toddlers. Parents will have the opportunity to take part in storytelling and rhyme time sessions with their little ones, and to speak to our reading experts about their child’s reading journey. There’s something for everyone; from parents who are yet to start reading to their baby to those who already read regularly. This is also an opportunity to join the baby book club and receive the best new books for babies and toddlers. Click here for a timetable of events


It promises to be a fabulous free event and great day out for any family with preschool children.   If you can’ make it, and if you, do visit the Routes to Reading website which is full of interesting resources, as well as their Baby Club:



It is great to see such an exciting initiative in my “home” town!
