Victoria Navin has worked in special education for over ten years and has devised a series of stories to help children and young people connect to literature, culture and a range of topics. She has focused on promoting communication skills, building confidence and experiencing a range of sensory experiences. The books come as a download, and updates are available at no extra cost.
The books are set out in a structured format that provides the storyteller with information about props needed, extension activities such as role play, design and technology and relaxation. Journey Into Space, for example, also includes a small sheet of stickers and a jigsaw puzzle, and packs a lot into its thirty pages.
This is a super set of resources that could easily form the basis of a sensory story bag library for settings and family use.
