Every reasonable effort has been made to check copyright of the songs and rhymes featured on the Bookbug app, website and within training materials. If there are any errors or omissions, Scottish Book Trust will be pleased to insert the appropriate acknowledgement in any subsequent updates of these materials.

In addition, every reasonable effort has been made to check the origins of songs and rhymes featured in the Bookbug programme for historical racist intent. Scottish Book Trust recently removed the songs Jump Jim Joe and Five Little Monkeys from its repertoire.  It was brought to our attention that these songs have a racist historical legacy. Racism has no place in our programme content and we take this issue very seriously indeed. We periodically review all content, and will remove anything that has a historical racist legacy as soon as we are made aware. We support #blacklivesmatter and are committed to doing more.

We recommend listening to the current version of the Bookbug Toddler CD album on the Bookbug app or here on our website.
