Bounce & Rhyme

Weekly, throughout the year
Location: Glasgow libraries
Tickets: Free

Bounce & Rhyme is a fun, free activity for babies and toddlers under 3 and their parents in libraries all over Glasgow!


Bounce & Rhyme is a fun activity for parents, carers and children 3 or under with action songs, rhymes and stories that help children’s literacy and numeracy. Sessions are completely free, and they’re on in many of Glasgow’s libraries on a weekly basis.

Bounce and Rhyme provides a fun opportunity for parents, carers and children to sing, read, play and talk together. And if you can’t quite remember the words to the songs you’re trying to sing, Bounce & Rhyme is a great way for parents and carers to brush up on their nursery rhymes!

It also helps to improve literacy and numeracy skills in their pre-school and school years! As you read, sing and repeat rhymes and share stories with your children you are not only having fun but your are helping your child to increase their vocabulary and develop skills and knowledge which can improve speech, language and communication skills.​

Bounce and Rhyme sessions are held regularly in libraries throughout Glasgow. Most are on weekly, but not all sessions are on during school holidays or public holidays.
