Bookbug Explorer Bag Training

Making the most of your gifting events.

This training session offers practitioners an understanding of how to gift the Explorer Bag effectively, including how to excite children about books, stories and reading.

The Bookbug Explorer Bag is gifted to every three-year-old in Scotland in their ante-preschool year. The free Explorer Bag is packed with books, music, drawing materials and other resources to encourage parent and child interaction. Research shows us that the bags are most effective when parents and children are involved in the gifting process.

Please note, in order to make best use of our funding, we are only able to offer a very limited number of in-house training sessions for specific groups of professionals, in certain geographical locations. We would strongly encourage organisations who would like their staff to be trained to apply for places in one of our open training sessions.

“I just wanted to say a quick thank you for the training. It was most useful, really enjoyable and the staff are very enthusiastic to undergo changes within the setting to accommodate all their ideas surrounding literacy, songs, rhymes and stories.” Practitioner
