Bookbug

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.

A Bookbug session is currently running starting on the 14th February in the parents room and will run on Tuesday mornings at 9.15am for approx 45 minutes. All welcome but parents must attend with their child.
