We know lots of our children and families have enjoyed Bookbug over the years and this year, they are celebrating their 10th birthday. Have a look at the message they’ve asked us to share with you!
“Bookbug turns 10 this year and we will be having some special online celebrations for Bookbug Week from 18-24 May. There are lots of ways to take part at home and enjoy the fun!
Before Bookbug Week starts, we’ll be marking 10 years of the Bookbug programme starting from 11 May, and will have a very special message from the First Minister to share with you. We’d also love to feature your thoughts on the impact of Bookbug, any memories you have or what Bookbug means to you. If you have something to share please let us know.
Bookbug Week will be online from Monday 18 May. We will be having a special drawalong with Debi Gliori from Monday to Friday where we can learn how to draw Bookbug and some very special friends in bitesize films. We will also have a very special film with Debi Gliori as she explains how she created Bookbug!
Sprog Rock have created an exclusive new song for the Bookbug app to celebrate Bookbug’s Birthday! This will be launching on Wednesday 20th in our popular midweek rhyme slot!
We’ll have a special celebratory static Bookbug Session for families to try at home themselves on the website on Monday 18 and our new live with Paul Bookbug Session on Bookbug’s Facebook page for everyone to join in with on Friday 22 at 10am. Please tune in and sing happy birthday at the top of your voices.
Our home activities hub will be packed with even more themed ideas to try at home, from making a party hat to colouring in Bookbug.
All through the week we’ll also have special competitons on our website and social media, and be asking for families’ memories of their child’s Bookbug Bags and Bookbug Sessions with their wee ones. We’re also hoping little ones might make a birthday card for Bookbug, take a photo and share it with us! “
