Bookbug Primary 1 Family Bag
We are delighted to announce that Bookbug will once again be gifting a Bookbug Primary 1 Family Bag to every Primary 1 child in Scotland during Book Week Scotland 2015.
This Bookbug Bag will help to create a lasting link between reading at school and at home. Your child is learning to engage with a whole new world of stories and you too can open up an exciting world of reading at home by sharing the books in the Bag together.
You'll find some information below about the 2014 pack.
How do I get my Bookbug Primary 1 Family Bag?
All schools are encouraged to give out the Bag during Book Week Scotland in November, although this may vary.
We hope your child’s school will be in contact with you about the Bookbug Primary 1 Family Bag, but if you have yet to hear anything, please do contact your child’s school for more information.
What does the Bookbug Primary 1 Family Bag include?
This year’s Bag includes:
Three brilliant picture books – All shortlisted for the Scottish Children’s Book Awards.
The titles are:
- Lost for Words by Natalie Russell

An activity booklet - filled with games and activities for Primary 1 children and their families to do together.

Get involved with the Scottish Children's Book Awards
We want all primary 1 children to read the three shortlisted books in their Bag and vote for their favourite. We hope your child's school or local library is taking part in this year's awards, but if they're not, you can still submit your child's vote for their favourite book.
Simply send back the voting slip found in your child's Bookbug Primary 1 Family Pack to the freepost address for Scottish Book Trust.
There’s also lots more information about the Scottish Children’s Book Awards on our website including videos of the authors reading their books to help you share and enjoy the books with your child.
