CHEEKY monkeys and terrifying tigers took over Weston Library as part of seven days of events to celebrate National Bookstart Week.

The week, which began on June 8 and finished on Sunday, aims to reinforce the importance of families getting into the habit of reading together every day.

A jungle-themed session was held in Weston’s library last Thursday and children got dressed up as their favourite animal. Each child who attended the event was given a free Rumble In The Jungle booklet written by Giles Andreae. A North Somerset Council spokesman said: “These events in our libraries encourage families to enjoy reading together. They can also take the opportunity to borrow further books to read at home.”
