Review - Bounce and Rhyme, Micklefield Library

I love a good library.

Who doesn't love a good library?!

I love to read, I love discovering new books, of course I love the library.


It's something I couldn't wait to introduce Lily and Ollie to and with so many other activities being offered in our local library I'd have to be an idiot to not go along regularly.

One of our favourites is the weekly Baby and Toddler song time: Bounce and Rhyme. It's a completely free activity that runs every Friday morning - sometimes even during the holidays and is open to all babies from birth to 5 years.

Bounce and Rhyme sessions are held across all Buckinghamshire Libraries but vary by day, length and staff enthusiasm.

The one at Micklefield Library is popular and I think this is mainly down to the friendly and approachable staff - they're clearly passionate about what they do and have no inhibitions when it comes to a decent rendition of Wheels on the Bus.


There is a large supply of cuddly toys, puppets and instruments available in the room, both for play before the session starts and as props for the various songs. Towards the end they grab a blanket for the obligatory 'monkeys jumping on the bed' rhyme which always goes down well. Bubbles signal home time with the staff taking the time to ensure that each child gets some bubble-popping opportunities!

Lily tends to be one of the eldest children attending as we go along before her afternoon pre-school session. But there are plenty of younger children, facilities for changing them and spaces to park up the pram. We tag on a book browsing session at the beginning or end of Bounce and Rhyme which runs from 10:30 until 11:30.

It's fun for the kids, doesn't cost a penny and is definitely worth a visit!
