Bank Holiday Closures

Bookbug

What is Bookbug?

Free, friendly, fun sessions of songs, rhymes and stories for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers 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.

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 pre-schoolers 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.

There are four fantastic free bags of books for young children in East Ayrshire:
· Baby Bag: from the registrar when you register your baby’s birth
· Toddler Bag: from your health visitor when your child is 13-15 months
· Explorer Bag: from nursery when your child is 3
· Primary 1 Family Bag: from school when your child is in P1
Gaelic Bookbug Bags are also available for families interested in Gaelic.
Tactile books are available for children with additional support needs alongside their Bookbug Bags.

What parents enjoy about Bookbug:

“He loves borrowing his books and loves to talk about coming to Bookbug.”

“Great to socialise whilst developing skills and abilities.”

“My 15-month-old daughters’ vocabulary has developed rapidly as a result of Bookbug.”
