Welcome to Bookbug

Sharing stories, songs and rhymes with babies and young children has many benefits including supporting children’s language, learning and social skills. It’s fun, free and simple, and the benefits will last their lifetime.

Bookbug can help by giving every child in Scotland four free bags of books(this will open in a new window) and other resources for sharing songs and rhymes to babies, toddlers, three and five year olds. You can come along to free Bookbug Sessions(this will open in a new window) held in libraries and community settings across the country, where mums, dads and carers can enjoy sharing stories, songs and rhymes with their little ones and meet other families. Our free Bookbug app(this will open in a new window) is another way to make songs and rhymes part of your day.
