Bookbug have two Explorer training sessions taking place next month in Inverness and in Dingwall.
The training sessions offer practitioners an understanding of how to gift the Explorer Bag effectively, including how to excite children about books, stories and reading.
The Bookbug Explorer Bag is gifted to every three-year-old in Scotland in their ante-preschool year. The free Explorer Bag is packed with books, music, drawing materials and other resources to encourage parent and child interaction. Research shows us that the bags are most effective when parents and children are involved in the gifting process.
