How can we make reading fun?

Children reading

Share a story or two with your children.

Barty's thought Children and toys


There are lots and lots of children,

Who are always asking ‘why’

The people walk across the street

Whenever they pass by?

 Girls reading

And the answers either lockdown,

Keep your distance, stay apart,

Wash your hands and wear a face mask

This message tugs at your heart.

Boys reading



So Barty and I went whispering,

And Barty looked very bright, he said

‘I Think we should help the children’,

And you know I think he’s right.

 Everyone reading

‘We should give them a signed story book,

They could even buy a few.

Perhaps could share it with their mum or dad,

Brothers, sisters, Nanny’s too.’


Story books for children 4 - 8 or indeed anyone who loves a bus story.

Let's escape in a book with our children.
