Ilford book bubble inspires Redbridge children to take up reading challenge

Children have been travelling inside James’ Giant Peach, climbing through the Hungry Caterpillar’s fruit and joining the Mad Hatter’s tea party in response to their favourite storybooks.

The Big Book Bubble has been in Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford, since last month, with installations based on children’s books.

It is designed to inspire families to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge and is also part of the Redbridge Cultural Olympiad.

The book bubble, which gives children the chance to go to the shops in Milly Molly Mandy’s village and jump on Max’s bed from Where the Wild Things Are, will be at Redbridge Central Library until today.
