Young bookworms in Queensferry and Kirkliston will be treated to tales of pirates and flying carpets as part of a scheme to get pre-school children reading.
Four-year-olds across the Edinburgh area will receive two new books each, specially chosen to inspire youngsters to read and share stories.
Reading Rainbows’ aim is to spark a love of reading among under-fives.
The project is also designed to support parents to share books and stories with their children, encouraging them to visit libraries together.
