NSSM will take place during May 2016 and the theme for 2016 is 'A Place for Stories'. The idea is to encourage the telling and sharing of stories in unusual (but safe) places.
Anywhere from under a tree to aboard a barge or a cross channel ferry, in the depths of a castle, on a bridge or under a bridge, under the bed, in a cafe, at a stately home, in the depths of a forest, a tent, at the bottom of the garden, in a bird hide, on an island, at a museum, at a fairground, on the bus, on a park bench ............... the ideas are endless!!
If you want to support and encourage your own or other children in reading, if you want to learn more about children's books or set up a family reading group, if you are a teacher or librarian who would like to share your passion and expertise about books with your local community, the Federation of Children's Book Groups offers you the opportunity to do all of these.
The Federation is a national voluntary self-funded organisation whose aim is to promote enjoyment and interest in children's books and reading and to encourage the availability of books for children of all ages, from first picture books to young adult.
Their groups around the country, whose members include parents and carers, teachers and librarians, along with our individual and professional members, all want to nurture a love of reading through the sharing of books with children.
