Bookbug Rhymetime, a club run by Brechin Library, began again on Tuesday, August 23.

Parents and children alike enjoyed a visit from Bookbug, who was in attendance to take part in singing and rhyming sessions.

The group is for babies and toddlers from birth to five years, along with their mums, dads, grandparents or carers.

Bookbug sessions run by library staff, are informal and fun, with nursery rhymes old and new, action songs and stories, helped along by musical instruments and puppets.

The sessions help babies and children to learn new words and gain a sense of rhythm and movement. Children also learn to interact with others and to make new friends.

Adults also gain from the group as they learn new songs such as ‘Eyes, Nose, Cheeky Cheeky Chin’ as well as old favourites like ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’ and ‘Ring a Ring a Rosies.’

Once the session is finished, adults are encouraged to choose some books for the children to take home.

You do not have to be member of the library to take part and the sessions are open to everyone.
