Book Week Scotland is an annual celebration of books and reading that takes place across the country during November. The Scottish Book Trust runs a programme of events and initiatives enabling everyone to get involved.
With the Scottish International Storytelling Festival also taking place during autumn as well as World Nursery Rhyme Week in November there's lots to celebrate in terms of language and cultural diversity in the classroom.
For our part, we like to encourage language learners to celebrate these events by reading stories and singing songs from across the globe. Here we provide some suggested links and resources to help achieve this in the classroom.
