Bookbug is the Scottish Government funded gifting programme which gifts free books to children at key point between birth and five. the Bookbug Explorer bag is gifted to three year olds in the ante pre-school year via early years settings. All settings in Aberdeen have received an order form and the delivery of the bags is underway. The Explorer bag is a great opportunity to promote early language and literacy development and to engage with parents and carers to encourage family reading. Research shows that involving parents/carers when the bag is gifted has an impact on how the books are used at home. Why not use the Bookbug Explorer bag gifting to invite parents/carers to stay and read with their child or hold a celebration event either in nursery or at your local library ?
To support practitioners in the gifting of this fantastic free resource Aberdeen City Libraries will deliver a free CLPL session in partnership with Scottish Book Trust at Aberdeen Central Library on Monday 29 April 2019 5pm -6.30pm . For more information and to book
