On National Libraries Day, Saturday 6 February 2016, Wester Hailes Library is hosting a special launch event for the Scottish Government’s ‘Read, Write, Count’ campaign.
Parents, carers and children in P1-P3 are invited to come along from 2.00pm – 3.00pm and join Michelle McManus, Scottish Singer & Presenter, for a reading of two of her favourite children’s books:
- ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson
- ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’ by A A Milne
There will also be lots of fun games and craft activities to join in with, and children will receive a free book gift pack to take home and enjoy.
‘Read, Write, Count’ is a Scottish Government-led campaign which aims to improve key numeracy and literacy skills among young primary school children across Scotland. Visit www.readwritecount.scot for great tips, activities and ideas that make reading, writing and counting with children an easy, fun and positive experience.
