Bag Books also delivers multi-sensory storytelling sessions at special schools, adult day centres, libraries, children’s hospices and hospitals throughout the UK.

The Fairground

The  Fairground

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

A Day at the Seaside
Each Bag Book is handmade in a workshop by a team of skilled craft artists and volunteers and takes an average of seven hours to make. Pictured are the pages that make up one of the most popular stories, A Day at the Seaside, featured in the Appeal.

“Ivan was eating his ice cream when a huge seagull swooped down and snatched it out of his hand”

“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.
