Youngsters are enjoying hopping aboard the PlayTalkRead bus, which is touring East Lothian until Friday, November 16.
The free roadshow is a key part of the Scottish Government’s PlayTalkRead campaign, which focuses on the early years of children’s lives, encouraging them to play, talk and read more often.
The bus will be calling at Ormiston, Macmerry, Musselburgh, Humbie, Gifford, Innerwick, East Linton, Dunbar, Tranent, Prestonpans, Longniddry, Gullane, Dirleton, North Berwick and Haddington.
Full details of all the free sessions are available on the East Lothian Council website – www.eastlothian.gov.uk
Created in partnership with Working on Wheels, Scottish Book Trust, the Play@Home scheme and other voluntary organisations the initiative offers mums, dads and tots Bookbug, song, rhyme and story sessions.
