Bookbug West Lothian

Bookbug is Scotland's universal early years book gifting programme and aims to inspire a love of stories, songs and rhymes from birth.

Bookbug Banner

Bookbug encourages all parents and carers to enjoy books with their children from as young an age as possible, developing a lifelong love of books.

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.
