Catherine Rayner and Reading Rainbows

Congratulations to author and illustrator Catherine Rayner who has just won the Peters’ picture book of the year award for Smelly Louie!

Catherine’s been  a great friend to Edinburgh Libraries, and recently helped Gracemount nursery pupils celebrate the start of this year’s Reading Rainbows at South Neighbourhood Office and Library.

She shared some stories before presenting each child with a gift book pack containing 2 picture books, a pen and pad and an activity leaflet.

This year, over 1000 4-year-olds across the city will get a free book pack and hopefully, take part in Reading Rainbows events in libraries and Early Years’ Settings.
