As many of you out there with young children will know, actor Tom Hardy has been causing quite a stir by reading the Mother’s Day bedtime story on C-Beebies!

If you missed it, you can watch Tom reading Ross Collins’ Bookbug Picture Book Prize nominated story ‘There’s a Bear on my Chair’ on iPlayer.

The Bookbug Picture Book Prize short-list makes up the Bookbug P1 Family Pack gifted to every P1 child in Scotland by The Scottish Book Trust.

Whilst you enjoy the story make sure you download CALL Scotland’s symbolised resources for children with communication difficulties and those with English as an Additional Language (EAL), which accompany 'There's a Bear on my Chair' and many other Bookbug Picture Book Prize nominated books from this and previous years. A range of vocabulary sheets and teaching activities as well as guides on how to use them are all available too.

Download the FREE symbol resources.

You can still request digital accessible copies (PowerPoint for PC and Keynote for iPad) of this year’s short-listed books from CALL Scotland. They can be used by any child with a Print Disability and are accessible via switch, joystick, touch screen or eye gaze.

This year’s books are Hare and Tortoise by Alison Murray, Shark in the Park on a Windy Day by Nick Sharratt and There’s a Bear on my Chair by Ross Collins.

Request digital copies

21 previously short-listed accessible digital copies are also available from the Books for All Database.
