Bookbug Bounces, Tickles and Rhymes

January 18, 2011

Renee, Liz and Lynn are driving us all mad as they practice rhymes and songs for the next programme of Bookbug Sessions. The sessions are just about to restart and they are introducing some new rhymes – ones you may have forgotten and ones that are entirely new, even to us!

Bookbug reading a bookIf you come to any of our sessions make sure you pick up a FREE Bookbug rhyme booklet.  (There is a different rhyme booklet especially for babies.) If you can’t wait to get started learning the new stuff, or you can’t make the sessions and are looking for some bounces, tickles and rhymes to try, then you can download copies of both booklets from the links below.

If you would like more information contact Renee on 01292 272232 or email Renee.Gillan@south-ayrshire.gov.uk
