Letterbox Club 2021

Hello and welcome to your Letterbox Club pack introduction. Because we know under 5s language development has been affected by the lockdowns, and because we’re not able to do Storytimes in person, we’ve recorded a very special Storytime using the first parcel. Kirklees Libraries have made the video (which is available at the bottom of the page) to showcase the first Letterbox Club pack. We are supporting Kirklees Virtual Schools, who are working with your grown ups to make sure you get all the BookTrust Letterbox Club packs.

Each month you’ll receive 2 books, a puppet and some surprises…crayons and a sketch book are great to get you started in pack one…what will you draw? Maybe you could draw your puppet…we got a lion as our first one…which one did you receive? The drawing things are great for writing and illustrating your own stories and learning your colours…maybe you could write your name and age on the front of your special drawing book. We hope you all love your book packs which are yours to keep.

If you’d like to borrow additional books, please get in touch with your local library, as most are starting to re-open now. To find out more about Kirklees Libraries and how we are reopening, head over to our Kirklees Together webpages. You can also join the library and get Ebooks and E audio books online.

There will also be a special, live streamed Library Adventures Live! (LAL!) session in late July/early August where we meet with an illustrator from one of the books in your packs. You’ll be able to find out more about them, take part in a draw along and even send in questions for them to answer. Anyone can watch our LAL! sessions (either live or on catch up), you don’t need to be in Kirklees. You can find out all about LAL! on our website.
