Better Beginnings provides every two-year-old child in Western Australia a free reading pack.

Your reading pack includes:

  • A beautiful picture book, ‘When the Waterhole Dries Up’ by Kaye Baillie and Max Hamilton
  • An information booklet for families
  • Playdough and a playdough mat
  • A booklist
  • A bookmark

Your Community Child Health Nurse can supply you with a reading pack when you visit your local Child Health clinic with your toddler for their two-year-old health check. You can search for your closest Maternal, Child & Family Health Centre here.

Alternatively, you can go directly to your local library and ask for a Better Beginnings Toddler pack. Search for your nearest library using our Find a Library.

While you’re there, why not ask about Story Time sessions?
