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.
