Bookbug Sessions

Bookbug Sessions

What are they?

Free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies (age 0-2 years), toddlers (age 2 - 4 years), preschoolers and their families and carers to enjoy together. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and has been designed to support children’s development while having fun. They take place in a very relaxed environment and are a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your little one, and meet other families.

Why?

Rhymes and songs help your baby’s language skills and are great building blocks for your baby’s future learning. Sharing time singing with your babies, toddlers and preschoolers is a fantastic way to have fun together. And it’s a great place to meet other families. Come along and join in the fun.

What is Bookbug?

Bookbug is the book sharing programme delivered in partnership by national reading charity Scottish Book Trust, local authorities, libraries and health trusts. Bookbug encourages parents and carers to share books with their children from as early an age as possible to inspire a love of reading in every child.

Why read and sing with my baby or child?

Bookbug aims to help every child in Scotland develop a love of books and reading. Sharing books, songs and rhymes for a few minutes a day will:

• Develop language skills

• Allow time for cuddling and bonding

• Help families to relax

• Boost children’s confidence

• Encourage drawing and writing

• Provide a strong start in life
