Havering Library Service run Baby Bounce sessions for children from 0 to 24 months.

Singing nursery rhymes has been proven to help children develop their language and pre-literacy skills.

Stories introduce children to new words and experiences.

By using rhythmic language and repetition children learn how words are formed, supporting the early stages of language development.

Using actions with songs improves hand-eye co-ordination.

The sessions are a shared time between parent/carer and your child.

They can be of value for families who have English as a second language.
