Wee Books Fer Hame

Giein the wee Ziggy books tae tak hame is a key pairt o the early years approach. We howp that parents/carers will jine in thair bairns’ learnin gang wi Ziggy, an enjoy sharin the stories an activities at hame. It’s nivver ower early fer a bairn tae ta kip guid road safety habits that will last thaim aw thair days, sae it’s gey important fer adults tae set guid ensamples in real life situations.

Ower aw there are six beuks that will tak a bairn frae age 3 tae primary 1. In the twa pre-schuil years, bairns will get the first five books, follaed bi the final beuk whan thay gang on tae primary 1. In pre-schuil, the bairns will be gien the beuks to tak hame at the maist fittin time, fer ensample eftir the story his been read in class. The primary 1 book, 'Ziggy and Maggie Start Schuil', is a pairt o the Scottish Book Trust's Bookbug Primary 1 Faimlie Pack.
