Scotland's first Gaelic alphabet book for children was launched by the City of Edinburgh Council's education department earlier this month.

The Quirky Alphabet, An Aibidil Annasach, was created by Gaelic development officer Norma Martin, who came up with the idea after talking to early years staff at Tollcross Primary, the only school in Edinburgh to have its own Gaelic unit.

With the help of illustrator Jo Allan, they created a colourful and entertaining book, which includes a glossary for learners.

The book is available though the City of Edinburgh Council Publications Unit (pound;7.99).
