Looking for more in Reading and Stories or The Bookbug Picture Book Prize?

Register and vote: The Bookbug Picture Book Prize

Voting has now closed. Thank you for taking part.

We're so excited to share our shortlist for The Bookbug Picture Book Prize(this will open in a new window), celebrating the best new Scottish children’s books, and we're asking children across Scotland to vote for their favourite.

All Primary 1 children receive the three shortlisted books in the Bookbug P1 Family Bag each year, and children of all ages can vote for their favourite!

Teachers, librarians and learning professionals

If you're a teaching professional, you'll need to sign in or create a Scottish Book Trust website account and register to take part.

Lots of schools register to vote as a class - or even a whole school! Children don’t have to be in P1 to vote – we encourage children of all ages to get involved. The only rule is you must read or listen to all three books to cast a vote.

Parents and carers

You can also take part in The Bookbug Picture Book Prize at home - vote for your favourite before Friday 5 February 2021! Children don’t have to be in P1 to vote – we encourage children of all ages to get involved.

In order to be eligible to vote in the prize, you need to be a resident in Scotland and your children need to have read all three books or watched our videos of all three books(this will open in a new window).
