What is Bookbug?

Bookbug encourages parents and children to share books together from birth.

What is a Bookbug Session?

Bookbug Sessions combine stories, songs and rhymes in a fun and interactive way for children and families. A Bookbug Session is typically about 30 minutes long. It will always start with a hello song and end with a goodbye song. It will include songs and rhymes and a story.

Sharing books with your child has many wonderful benefits and it is never too early or too late to start. Sharing books together will:

  • Develop your child's language skills
  • Help you bond with your child
  • Help your child feel more relaxed
  • Boost your child's confidence
  • Encourage your child to draw and write
  • Give your child a head start in life
  • Most importantly, it's lots of fun!

Glenbrae also holds a Bookbug Session each term as part of our 'Stay & Play' days. These are open to any child that attends the nursery and their parents/carers.
