Bookbug Sessions

Bookbug Sessions are free, fun and friendly events for babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and their families to enjoy together. 

Each session lasts around 30 minutes and includes songs, stories and rhymes. There is usually no need to book, they take place in a very relaxed environment and are a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your little one.

The sessions are widely available throughout Scotland and are generally held in libraries or other community venues. Going along to a session is a great way to meet other mums, dads, carers and children in your local area.  

They also have lots of benefits for your child, such as building up their confidence and social skills, and will give their speech and language development a real boost!
