Make your Bookstart 20 Pledge today!

Once again it's worth mentioning that the Bookstart organisation would like you to pledge to share 20 books this year. How easy is that? Very easy.

Making a pledge is even easier, just hop on through to the Bookstart 20 Pledge Page here and fill in a few details. If you're a bit of a superstar you might even want to upload an image to share on the pledge wall.

I've seen so many people toting those rather stylish Bookstart bags around when I'm at the library or around town (ours is a bit tattered and has a huge hole in it but we still use it). Bookstart has been a fantastic bonus to Charlotte and through Bookstart she's encountered brilliant authors and equally brilliant books that she may have missed otherwise.

Please make a pledge, and please do as much as you can to ensure that the Bookstart organisation prevails. In an age when more and more libraries are being shut down or trimmed to the bare bones, the Bookstart Trust is vital.

At ReadItDaddy, as well as sharing the joy of books through this blog we try and do all we can to get people enthusiastic about introducing books and reading to their children from the earliest age possible and it will be our pleasure to ensure we share 20 books (and probably a whole lot more) with as many people as possible. If everyone does their bit Bookstart can look forward to its 30th, 40th, 50th anniversaries and beyond!
