Boston Library welcomed a special guest to its weekly story time session on Friday ... one that may have caused some readers to paws for thought.

The Bookstart Bear, from the Book Trust, the largest reading charity in the UK, was on hand to join families on the day.

The Bookstart programme supports parents and carers to enjoy books with their children from as early an age as possible.

Friday’s session had a pirate theme and the Bookstart Bear got into the spirit by donning a pirate hat.

l Story time features fun stories, rhymes and craft activities for under fives. It is held each Friday from 2pm to 2.30pm.
