These gorgeous picture books will be gifted to children across Scotland in the Bookbug Primary 1 Family bag – these are delivered to schools in Aberdeen during October.

Each school also receives a Teacher’s pack containing one copy of each title, a promotional poster and ideas for classroom activities related to the books. The Teacher’s packs were sent by internal mail week beginning 03 September 2018.

Aberdeen City Libraries supports the Prize by ensuring each library has a voting box where children can vote. Visits by school and nursery groups are welcomed and provide an opportunity to encourage reading for pleasure. To arrange a visit contact your local library.
