Look For A Book Fun with Bertie!

Bertie is joining in on the LOOK for a BOOK fun and helping to bring excitement back into reading! 


National Read a Book Day

Bertie will be hiding 25 books all around the Prince Bishops Shopping Centre for children to find on Friday 6th of September which is National Read a Book Day. Keep your eyes peeled, some of the books also include a treat card to Bertie's Play Barn, hidden inside. 


What to do

Once you find a book, you can choose to leave it, read it, or take it home. Keep it for as long as you want then re-hide it for someone else to find and enjoy. Most importantly... have fun! You could even hide some of your own books right here at Prince Bishops Shopping Centre.


LOOK for a BOOK North East 

Remember to take a picture and post all your finds on the LOOK for a BOOK North East, Facebook group page. Have fun! 

Why not follow us on Facebook and keep right up to date with what's happening down at Bertie's Play Barn. You can now send Bertie an email at or sign up to Bertie's Kids Club here!
