Nursery launches treasure hunt for books around Grantham

A nursery in Grantham has launched a treasure hunt for books aimed at making children fall in love with reading again.

Staff at StartRight Nursery on Trent Road, Grantham, have hidden some of their favourites books around the Earlsfield area of Grantham and in Barrowby for children to discover.

Once a book has been discovered by a child, their parents are asked to take a picture of it and where they found it before uploading it to the nursery facebook page so they can see who the lucky winners are.

After the child has finished reading the book, they are asked to re-hide it or swap it with another book that they no longer read.

Nursery manager Sarah Cornish said: “We are trying to promote and encourage more reading with young children in a fun way. We have hidden books in the local area of the nursery for children to take with them and enjoy with their parents. We have asked that parents take a picture of them finding the book and add it to the nursery facebook page and hide the book again when when they are finished.”

Sarah hopes that it will become a popular free fun activity for parents in the area.

She added: “We have hidden our first books this week but soon we are hoping to expand it to include books for primary school aged children too.”
