Tall Tales Service for people with learning disabilities: Sensory Stories to Share

What is the Tall Tales service?

The Tall Tales service is now available to local organisations through Wokingham Borough Libraries to provide bag books, which are multi-sensory story books for people with severe or profound learning disabilities. The Tall Tales service has been developed in partnership with the Wokingham Learning Disability Partnership Board.

What are Bag Books

Bag books are unique, hand-made multi-sensory resources aimed at developing communication skills for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities. They are designed for those who may find it difficult to access mainstream books, as they are told interactively through voice and emotion rather than words and pictures. They are also hugely beneficial to those with autistic spectrum disorders and visual and hearing impairments. Visit the Bag Books website for more details.

More details

The Tall Tales service is available to local organisations for a small annual charge. For more details call Wokingham Library on 0118 978 1368 or email wokingham.library@wokingham.gov.uk

We have recently added some new titles, Anna’s Allotment Bake, The Golden Book and He’s a Winner at the Supermarket, there are now 22 bags available to borrow.

The list of bags can be viewed on our website at
