The Open Door Project are pleased to be delivering their first Bookbug session: in the Prayer room at Bennochy, on Thursday 21st February, from 9.30am – 10.00am. There is no charge for the Bookbug session.
We will be sharing a book, singing familiar songs and rhymes, and having fun with Lycra! The session is open to parents/carers and under-fives. However, if you were part of the intergenerational ‘adopt a grandparent’ Bookbug sessions in 2018, you are welcome to join us.
The Olive Branch café will open early that day to offer attendees refreshments after the session.
What is Bookbug?
Under the banner of the Scottish Book Trust
; Bookbug, gifts book bags, to every child in Scotland. Along with running free song & rhymes sessions across the country.
Sharing stories, songs and rhymes with children has many wonderful benefits. The reader and child has lots of fun and with just a few minutes a day reading regularly, will:
- Develop a child’s language skills
- Give time to cuddle and help with bonding with the child
- Help you and the child feel more relaxed
- Boost the child’s confidence
- Encourage the child to draw and write
- Give the child a head start in life
