Fun for you and your baby

Wriggle & Rhyme

Wriggle & Rhyme is a free 30-minute session for babies and their adults. Sessions are held in these libraries:

Boscombe LibraryBournemouth Library, Castlepoint Library, Charminster Library, Kinson Hub, Pokesdown and Southbourne Library, Tuckton Library, Westbourne Library, West Howe Library, and Winton Library

We sit in a circle with the babies and sing action songs with them. We also use some musical instruments. Singing rhymes with your baby can help with their speech development.


Here are some comments from people who've come along to Wriggle & Rhyme:
