Schools can begin to teach the skill of voting in Primary 1 through the use of the Bookbug pack. By removing the voting slips from the packs, and using these as ballots (once you have read the children each of the three books), children can vote for their favourite text.

Register your class’ votes by signing up before December 31st on the following link:
