What is Bookbug?
Under the banner of the Scottish Book Trust; Bookbug, gifts book bags, to every child in Scotland. Along with running free song & rhymes sessions across the country. Sharing stories, songs and rhymes with children has many wonderful benefits. The reader and child has lots of fun and with just a few minutes a day reading regularly, will:
  • Develop a child’s language skills
  • Give time to cuddle and help with bonding with the child
  • Help you and the child feel more relaxed
  • Boost the child’s confidence
  • Encourage the child to draw and write
  • Give the child a head start in life
