Today at the E17 Georgian Village

Spent today at the E17 Georgian Village based in Wood Street, a shopping destination with a long local history it is an ideal place to drop in and pick up a variety of items (see below). Our pop ups featuring children's books and gifts are based there on a regular basis, wonderful for families, settings, childminders and early years professionals from the local area or further afield seeking high quality children's books and resources and a lovely afternoon out. Watch this space for details of our summer events.


Just a few of the traders and pop ups at #E17 The Georgian Village Definitely worth a look I have just been told.

Make a pledge for FRED this Fathers' Day

We're getting behind Fathers Reading Every Day (FRED) by sharing details of the Fatherhood Institute's  crowdfunding campaign to get Dad's into the reading habit by simply reading a bedtime story to their children. A bedtime story with Dad supports children's wellbeing, promotes attachment, literacy, communication and language development in children. To find out more watch the campaign video below. You can read more about the campaign and make a pledge for FRED here.

Making a difference on World Book Night (1)

We were delighted to donate some Barefoot stories to Ingeenium in support of their event '50 Years of Stories'  on World Book Night. Ingeenium is a 'creativity centred charity based in London' supplying 'creative projects for the people in London in order to empower communities and boost happiness'. 


So good to see families and their children at Ingeenium enjoying the books we donated on #WorldBookNight. Well done Jessica and thank you for sharing this lovely album!
