Rug Rhymes

Under-5s and their carers are invited to this short session of nursery rhymes, poems and rhyming stories.

Join the National Poetry Library puppets, Federico and Firebird, on their poem rug to find out what rhymes with rug!

Afterwards, you have the opportunity to look at and borrow books from our ever-growing children’s collection.
