Once upon a time... A sensory story was at a library near you

Stories and characters from a range of children’s books will come to life this summer, as part of Essex Libraries’ Sensory Stories time events.

Reading stories can be difficult for some children who have additional needs. These fun and exciting events are a great way to make stotries and books more accessible to all children and will be led by volunteers who’ve been specially trained by the Preschool Specialist Teacher team.

They will use a range of inclusive story telling methods and specialist equipment to captivate children’s imaginations and enable participation for children whatever their ability. There will also be a very special singing and signing session at Maldon library on the 28th.

All children attending will be supported to actively take part in the story time sessions regardless of difficulties with language and communication.
