Bag Books is a national charity producing handmade multi-sensory books for people with severe or profound and multiple learning disabilities. Bag Books also delivers multi-sensory storytelling sessions at special schools, adult day centres, libraries, children’s hospices and hospitals throughout the UK.
Bag Books stories are told through voice and emotion rather than words and pictures and each page comprises a different sensory experience. Here is Charlie, aged ten enjoying the ghost train page in The Fairground.
A Day at the Seaside
“Ivan was eating his ice cream when a huge seagull swooped down and snatched it out of his hand”
This page features a handmade seagull puppet, complete with squawking sound that swoops down to grab a knitted vanilla scented ice cream – engaging the senses of sight, sound and smell.
