Support for Bookstart - Elen Caldecott

There is no post scheduled for today. However, the last few days has seen a 100% cut in funding to Booktrust's book gifting programmes, so I feel compelled to post.
There are articles in the press about it written by Michael Rosen and Catherine Johnson.
There is also a petition you can sign if you disagree.

Right, the news headlines are over, so I'm going back to my pile of Christmas books and a Thorntons box big enough to exert its own gravitational pull on the tides. Happy Christmas!

One of the quickest U turns ever!

Thanks for letting us know. Have signed. The cloth bear bags are such a familiar sight around my town, you can tell how loved the scheme is too when you see parents lugging them in and out of the library.
