Bag Books are multi-sensory books that offer accessible stories for those who cannot benefit from mainstream books.They are told interactively, through actions and emotions rather than words and pictures, so they are perfect for anyone with severe learning difficulties (SLD), profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and those on the autistic spectrum.
They also work well with children who have language delay and younger mainstream children with visual impairment. Bag books are available to borrow from all libraries. For more information please download our Bag Books Leaflet
