World Book Day - the Scottish story
Children all over the country celebrated World Book Day yesterday, as reported in today's Herald. A highlight was the live event at the BBC featuring Michael Rosen, which was also watched online by children in over 900 schools. This is the first in a series of Meet Our Author events to be organised by the Scottish Book Trust - this link includes a report and a video. The Herald article also refers to a survey of parents, organised by Munch Bunch, to mark World Book Day by finding the top 20 bedtime stories - the favourite was Eric Carle's Very hungry caterpillar. The full list is in the Herald link above.
