  • Full-length Animated Video Now Available

    While lockdown continues Big Sky is delighted to release a full-length animation of the Boy and the Bunnet, created by John McGeoch of Arts in Motion. Great to watch with kids of all ages - remember you can also access the related teaching material here and have some educational fun during lockdown (all approved by the SQA). For every 250 views we’ll donate a Boy and the Bunnet book or CD to an education authority to share in schools after lockdown - so spread the word! And enjoy the magic of James Robertson’s words and James Ross’s music all over again!

    For brand new illustration and colouring in sheets visit the activities page.
