Come along to a Bookbug Session

Bring your little one to free story, song and rhyme sessions at your local library or community venue. Going to a Bookbug Session(this will open in a new window) is a great way for families to spend time bonding with each other and meet other families. Bookbug Sessions can also help to build children’s social skills and support their speech and language development.

Read a story together

It’s never too early to start reading with your little one. They love the sound of your voice and cuddling up for some special time with you.

Share some songs and rhymes

Hearing different sounds in songs and rhymes helps with speech and language. Find your favourites on our free Bookbug app(this will open in a new window) and in our song and rhyme library(this will open in a new window).
