Bookbug's first anniversary
Bookbug, Scottish Book Trust's Early Years Programme in which free picture books are distributed to every child in Scotland at certain points of their development, celebrated its first anniversary today with thousands of children taking part in hundreds of free events across the country on the theme of The Great Outdoors. As part of the celebrations, it was announced that one of the books to be distributed was created by a Home-Start Family group in Renfrewshire in collaboration with Scottish Book Trust’s Early Years Writer in Residence, Apple Pie ABC author Alison Murray.The picture book, entitled Little Mouse, is the beautifully illustrated story of a little girl who loves sharing books with her mother. The picture below shows Alison (centre) with parents from the group.
