Better Start Imagine

Go on a new adventure every day with free children’s books and story and rhyme time sessions

Do you have children aged 0-4?

  • Would you like to receive beautiful free children’s books through the post?

  • Do you want to enjoy stories and rhymes with your child?

  • Would you like to meet other local families?

Better Start Imagine will bring you all of this and more. Did you know that books and stories help build children’s brains, capture their imaginations, and can also help you connect and bond with them? It’s never too early to start.

Sign up to receive free books and you’ll receive a book a month every month until your child’s fifth birthday (or up to 31 March 2025, whichever is sooner). You can also go along to fun, weekly story and rhyme time sessions in local venues such as libraries and community centres.

This project is for families with children aged 0-4 living in the Better Start Bradford area

My son enjoys the storytelling session a lot and we always look forward to it. It helped with his speech development and his interest in books. A BIG thank you.
