On Friday 7th June we're celebrating Booktrust's Pyjamarama! It's time to get into your favourite character pyjamas and join forces with your storybook legend and read the dreamiest bedtime stories, all for a good cause.
What Is Pyjamarama?
Pyjamarama is all about staying in your PJs all day and bringing along £1 to help BookTrust give every child a bedtime story. BookTrust will also be giving away over 450,000 books to children through community settings. Anyone can get involved with Pyjamarama, whether you're at school, at home or working on bringing your local community together for a good cause. You can visit the BookTrust website for more information.
