BOOKISH babies are receiving a gift from Warwickshire registrars.
Warwickshire Registration Service and Warwickshire Libraries are gifting new parents a bookstart pack, including everything new parents need to start sharing stories, rhymes and songs with their babies.
They would normally receive the pack from their health visitor but as visits and registrations were disrupted due to the pandemic, registrars are now handing out the packs.
Warwickshire County Council transformation spokesperson Kam Kaur said: “Birth registrations are now up and running again in Warwickshire and our registrars have been busy registering those babies that were born during lockdown as well as those born more recently.
“We’d like to thank families for their patience over the past few months and it’s great for our registrars to be able to give new parents a little gift in the form of the bookstart pack when they do come to register their babies.
“Even tiny babies love to hear their parents read to them. We hope the book packs will help families have a bit of special time together sharing books and it will be the start of their children’s reading journey.”
