It is never too early to start sharing books with your baby.
Picture books are a wonderful way to introduce children to the world around them - and you will both find a lot of enjoyment in cuddling up with a story at bedtime.
Bookstart is a national scheme for under fours. It gives the gift of free books to children around eight months, 18 months and three years.
