A small Bookbug soft toy beside the Bookbug Picture Book Prize shortlist for 2023

Each November Bookbug gives every Primary 1 pupil in Scotland a free bag of books and resources to inspire a lifelong love of reading, writing and counting. The Bookbug Primary 1 Family Bag contains the three shortlisted titles for The Bookbug Picture Book Prize. Pupils are encouraged to take part in The Bookbug Picture Book prize by reading the books, or watching the videos of the shortlisted titles on our website, then voting for their favourite!

Gaelic P1 Bags are available for children in Gaelic Medium Education or families interested in Gaelic. These are designed to be bilingual and include the Gaelic and English versions of the books.

Children with additional support needs may benefit from CALL Scotland(this will open in a new window)'s symbol resources and digital versions of the books in the P1 Bag.
