Bookstart Rhymetimes

Bookstart Rhymetimes

Bookstart Rhymetimes are activities designed to encourage parents and carers to share rhymes and songs with babies from birth onwards.


Sessions are organised locally and take place in children's nurseries and libraries. They incorporate a mix of songs, rhymes, rhythm and movement, and provide the opportunity to share games, novelty books and toys.

Bookstart Rhymetimes are hugely successful all over the country.

Bookstart Rhymetimes are a great way to help spread the message of Bookstart to parents and families in your local area.

Rhyme time is George’s favourite activity at the library. We take out lots of books which saves us a lot of money and ensures he always has a variety of books at home.
