Children’s Laureate Captivates Scottish Kids

May 20, 2008

The UK Children’s Laureate, Michael Rosen, entertained a group of lucky young children recently, as part of his acclaimed tour of Scotland. Pupils from Kilmarnock’s Silverwood Primary and Oxgang Primary school in Kirkintilloch, were invited to the latest stop in Rosen’s tour at Glasgow’s Mitchell Library.

The author of popular publications, Quick Let’s Get Out Of Here, and We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, engaged the kids with poetry designed to help promote reading and writing, and to bring literature to life for a new generation.

Jasmine Fassl of the Scottish Book Trust said: “This is Michael Rosen’s only Scottish tour in 2008 and we are excited to have secured such an inspirational and funny speaker for Scottish children.”
