The PlayTalkRead bus is back in Renfrewshire – giving local families the chance to get creative, sing songs and tell stories.
The big purple bus will call at Ferguslie Library before touring Renfrewshire for two weeks from Monday 23 November, making a total of 10 fun-filled stops.
The PlayTalkRead bus travels up and down the country to show the positive impact of play. It introduces parents and carers to fun activities they can try at home with their child.
Councillor Jacqueline Henry, Renfrewshire Council’s Education and Children Convener, said: “Often the best play ideas are simple and don’t cost a penny. Interaction with children really helps build the child/parent bond while developing essential social skills and motivation that can make lifelong learning easier. Admission to the bus is free and there’s no need to book. Whenever and wherever parents and carers see the bus, they can hop on board with their children to discover a world of fun and engaging activities to do together.”
The PlayTalkRead bus offers parents and children the opportunity to join in with BookBug storytelling, rhymes and songs sessions with young passengers also receiving a free book or playcube to take home.
