Free Bookstart Treasure Gift Packs for 3 year olds

Bookstart gifts free books to all children at two key ages before school to help families read together every day and inspire children with a rewarding love of books.

The Bookstart Baby Pack is given to children by their registrar and the Bookstart Treasure Gift Pack is given to three-year-olds via their early years provider.

There are also additional needs packs available for children with additional needs, and dual language packs available for children with English as an additional language.

Settings will be contacted by Bookstart to place orders for eligible children.

Childminders can now gift the Treasure Packs if the child does not attend any early years settings (to prevent double gifting). Childminders will be sent an email to place orders on a rotation across the county and packs are delivered to your local libraries where childminders can collect them.

The schedule for ordering packs will be as follows:

  • October – North Devon
  • November – Mid Devon
  • December – Torridge
  • January – West Devon
  • March – Teignbridge
  • May – South Devon
  • June – Exeter
  • July – East Devon

Please look out for your Bookstart order email and respond by the deadlines stated in the message.
