Bookbug Session: Starting School
Pack your pencil cases and snacks – it's time to start school with Bookbug!
Hello, everyone! We're glad that you could come.
If you've got a little one starting school this August, here are some fun songs and rhymes that will help support their early numeracy, language learning and coordination, as well as other valuable social skills. You can find most of the songs and rhymes below on the Bookbug app and Song and Rhyme Library.
There's also a lovely rhyming story celebrating all the wonderfully funny things that make us who we are: The Same But Different Too by Karl Newson and Kate Hindley.
'I am me and you are you.
We're the same but different too.'
