Tall Tales- Sensory Stories to Share for people with learning disabilities

the-little-seed-for-flyerWokingham Borough Libraries now provide a service which enables learning disability groups and other community settings to borrow Bag Books. The Tall Tales service has been developed in partnership with the Wokingham Learning Disability Partnership Board.

Bag Books are unique, hand-made sensory resources aimed at developing communication skills for people with learning disabilities. Bag Books are aimed at those who may find it difficult to benefit from mainstream books. They are told interactively through voice and emotion rather than words and pictures.  Visit the Bag Books website for more details.
The following bags are available to borrow:

  • Aladdin
  • A Little Bit of Magic in the Playground
  • Andre’s Night Out
  • Band Rehearsal
  • C. J. The Library Cat
  • Day at the Seaside
  • The Fairground
