Youngsters ready for a Summer Reading Challenge during the school holidays can meet Book Start Bear in Bourne this month.

The lovable mascot promoting reading amongst children is visiting South Kesteven Community Point and Library in Abbey Road for a special story and rhyme time event on Tuesday August 12 at 2pm.

Book Start Bear is spreading the word about the Summer Reading Challenge Mythical Maze which encourages children aged between four and 11 to read six books during the summer holidays.

It is the mascot’s second visit to Bourne this year after previously joining youngsters and parents for a session at the Community Point and Library in March.

The library will be specially decorated for the event, with a big tree, flowers and leaves, to encourage children to write down their favourite books.
