Aura Libraries to celebrate ‘Big Welsh Rhymetime’ by opening up two online sessions this week
Flintshire-based Aura Libraries are celebrating the ‘Big Welsh Rhymetime’ as the service opens sessions online to coincide with the annual event.
Two ‘special’ live Rhymetime sessions will be hosted via Zoom, the first taking place on Thursday, 11 February at 2pm and the other on Friday, 12 February at 10:30am.
There will also be a ‘Big Welsh Rhymetime’ pack including stickers and a certificate which can be claimed from any local Aura library when collecting a ‘Select and Collect’ order.
The event is being organised by Book Trust Cymru, a children’s reading charity funded by the Welsh Government, and is for children aged 0-7.
Its purpose is to encourage children to share rhymes and songs in Welsh and English, helping them to develop speaking, listening and language skills before and whilst they learn to read.
Library Manager Susannah Hill said: “Aura Libraries are so excited to be celebrating the ‘Big Welsh Rhymetime’ this year. Sharing rhymes and songs with your baby or young child are a great way to have fun together.
“Babies love songs and rhymes and they are a great way to help your child’s talking and listening skills. Your voice is your baby’s favourite music so singing with them will help them in so many ways.
“We are looking forward to our special Zoom Rhymetimes and seeing lots of you joining in and sharing songs with us. We’ve got some special rhymes to share with you too!”
Book Trust Cymru will be sharing rhymes and activities during the event, which can be found on social media by following @BookTrustCymru on Twitter or visiting their website, here.
