National Storytelling Week • Vision RCL

National Storytelling Week

29 January to 5 February

Throughout National Storytelling Week, we will be encouraging parents and carers to read and share stories with their children including their own favourite childhood stories, however long ago that may be!

Reading and sharing stories with children can:

  • help your child get to know sounds, words and language
  • develop early literacy skills
  • learn to value books and stories
  • spark your child’s imagination
  • stimulate curiosity.

If you are not already signed up to Redbridge Libraries, it’s easy to join, just complete our online form. You can borrow up to twenty library books with your library card and access all of the services available at your local library as well as online service via our Virtual Library
