Bookbug Picture Book Prize

The Bookbug Picture Book Prize is for children in nursery, Primary 1, Primary 2 and Primary 3. There will be three picture books by Scottish authors on the shortlist - pupils will be encouraged to read the three books and then vote for their favourite. In addition, every P1 child in Scotland will receive the three books in the Bookbug P1 Family Bag, gifted in November. There will also be a continued focus on involving P4-7 pupils in a shared reading project with younger pupils.

One Button Benny by Alan Windram (author) and Chloe Holwill-Hunter (illustrator) is the winner of the Bookbug Picture Book Prize 2019.
