We've been busy creating some new items for our Chatterbooks Children's Welcome Packs and looking at how we do our Chatterbooks activity packs. Setting up a Chatterbooks club in your library or school is a great way of keeping up the momentum from the Summer Reading Challenge.
When you buy any of our materials, you'll also get access to downloadable resources with ideas and templates for running your group, Chatterbooks graphics and session activity sheets.
New in our Children's Welcome Packs
In September 2012 we introduced different items in our Children's Welcome Packs. A new look reading diary with exclusive messages for children from Jacqueline Wilson and authors Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore, plus a bright red and blue Chatterbooks wristband - voted the number one item by children in our in focus group consultation earlier this year. The pack also includes a red book bag, pen and bookmark.
Our Group Leader's Starter Pack is also available for £20 plus p&p. The Pack includes: Chatterbooks Handbook, 2 A3 posters, a group scrapbook, wall chart, 'book-bite' reviews post-it pad, and sticker sheets.
Both our Children's Welcome Pack and Group Leader's Starter Pack are also available in Welsh.
