On our last shared book reading session, P1/2 chose their last book (from the Scottish Children’s Book awards shortlist) to be read by their P6/7 buddies.
The children voted for their favourite book from the three beautifully illustrated picture books and the collated Elphinstone pupil results will be sent online to the Scottish Book Trust Awards. We will have to wait until March before we will find out the winner!
‘Lost for Words’ – 5 votes
Princess Penelope and the Runaway Kitten – 7 votes
Robot Rumpus – 5 votes
The P3 children also had the opportunity to vote for their favourites.
The P1 pupils were given their Bookbug P1 Family Pack: It contains the three books from the Scottish Children’s Book Awards shortlist, an activity book and a pack of coloured pencils and a ‘Ziggy and Maggie Start School’ road safety book.
