Barleylands Farm Park in Billericay is celebrating World Book Day with its Fun on the Farm toddler group.

The 80 children will be enjoying stories, colouring sheets and scavenger hunts to encourage a love of books. Working with Jane Grindy of Bookworm Boutique in Billericay, also the local representative for Usborne Books, each child will receive a £1 voucher to buy a book of their choice.

Farm Park Manager, Charlotte Goodman said: “I’m a huge supporter of getting kids and parents into books and storytelling, which we are doing all the time at Barleylands, is such an important part of expanding young minds and taking them into new worlds and adventures.

“We are looking forward to books being a central part of Barleylands over the whole of World Book Day week.”

World Book Day is Thursday March 5 with events going on across the UK over the weekend of March 7-8.
