Participate in the Scottish Children's Book Awards
We need all primary 1 children to read the three shortlisted books in their pack and vote for their favourite. A voting slip is included in the activity pack, which should be completed and returned to their teacher or local librarian by Friday 8th February 2013.
Pack Gifting CPD
Tracy Lowe, Scottish Book Trust’s highly experienced Early Years trainer, delivered 8 fun, interactive and informative CPD sessions, giving practical advice about making the best use of the Bookbug Primary 1 Family Pack.
You can now download slides from the CPD sessions at the bottom of this page.
There are lots of fantastic resources linking to the Scottish Children’s Book Awards including author videos, accessible versions of the books, and teacher resources.
These books were gifted in celebration of Book Week Scotland, 26th November – 2nd December.
