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.

Please get in touch with your local P1 contact if:
- your school have not received their P1 Bags or would like to request more bags.
- you have a P1-aged child who is educated at home to get a Bookbug P1 Family Bag for them.
Each local authority also has a Read, Write, Count contact(this will open in a new window) who is responsible for the delivery of the bags to children in Primary 2 and 3.
