The Bookbug Primary 1 Family bags were delivered to all Local Authority schools in Aberdeen before the October holidays. This is the fourth and final bag gifted to children as part of the Scottish Goverment funded book gifting programme – Bookbug and the bags should be gifted during Book Week Scotland ( 19 -25 November 2018)
The books in the bag are those shortlisted for the Bookbug Picture Book Prize 2019 and provide a great opportunity to engage with families to support developing literacy skills, promote reading for pleasure and encourage library membership.
A short presentation to support school based staff involved in gifting the bags is available to download
