ONE OF THE MOST successful children’s authors in the UK is to lead a Bookbug session for youngsters at the Elgin Library this week.

Vivian French MBE is behind over 250 books, many picture books and most notably perhaps the Tiara Club series. In all her work has seen over three million copies being sold – among these the highly successful ‘Tales from Five Kingdoms’ series.

She will lead the session on Saturday from 11am – with places offered free of charge although they must be booked in advance by calling the library on 01343 562600.

Bookbug sessions are suitable for babies and toddlers and form part of the national Bookbug programme which encourages and helps to develop reading from the earliest possible age.

Saturday’s session will also see a relaunch of the Bookbug library challenge which rewards pre-school children for borrowing books on their own tickets.

Jane Sandell, senior library for young people’s services, said: “It is never too early to introduce children to books, stories and reading or to get them into the habit of using their library.

We are always delighted to see children of any age in our libraries.”
