Event Details

Medway Libraries already operate a ‘Baby Bounce and Rhyme’ and ‘Toddler Shake and Boogie’ routine in their libraries for mothers and toddlers.

These four energetic and fun-packed sessions combine traditional nursery rhymes, songs and movement with Caribbean beats and melodies. Run by a Lyrici Arts facilitator, the event will introduce adults to the Caribbean islands and their musical influences.

Everyone can then sing along to well-known nursery rhymes with the audio addition of steel pans, Caribbean calypso and reggae melodies.

To end the 30-60 min session children will be offered mango segments and can dance to the song ‘Mango Time’, before taking a colouring –in sheet to continue the fun at home.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.
