Reading Recommendations from Primary One

It’s Book Week Scotland and we’ve been all over Leith to ask people what they like reading. Yesterday we went to Leith Victoria Primary School to speak to the children in primary one (5 year olds): Watch the video on Youtube:

You may have noticed the crocodiles? Helen ran a crocodile bookbug session which included making crocodiles and a reading of Soloman Crockodile. I helped to make the crocodiles too (snap!).

The children loved the crocodile songs:

And the story:IMG_20121129_135352The great thing is every Primary One child in Scotland gets a free copy of Soloman Crockodile thanks to the Scottish Book Trust. It comes in the Family Pack along with two other picture books that have been shortlisted for the Children’s Book Awards 2012.

Helen met with some of the parents at Leith Victoria to show them the Family Pack:

Find out more about the Family Pack on the Scottish Book Trust Website.

You can keep up to date with all the Book Week Scotland action from us in Leith on twitter and facebook. Find out what we’re up to the rest of the week here. There will be cake, book making, vegetables, singing and authors sharing their Memories of Leith.
