Local delivery of the Bookbug programme is managed by LSS through book pack gifting, promoting Bookbug activities and is clearly linked to the Scottish Government’s Literacy Action Plan:
- Strengthening links with Health Centres
- Developing a strong reading culture from the earliest age
- Creating partnerships to support literacy improvement with family learning, early years’ establishments, schools and local libraries
This pack is issued by health visitors in the Falkirk Council area at a baby’s health check (usually between 6 and 16 weeks). Parents/carers can also collect a pack from their local public library.
