Multi-sensory stories for children and teenagers

Bag books and multi-sensory stories are a free resource available from Wiltshire's Libraries

Published 1 December 2022
Bag Books, Multi-Sensory Stories - a picture of the multi-sensory items that come with one of the stories: a gold record, a violin, a drum and stick, a maraca, coffee aroma, a microphone, a toy mixing console, a tie, a CD, and a hand clapper.

All our libraries have special children's areas with a range of books and resources for all ages and abilities, some of which are free of charge, such as:

  • Audiobooks
  • Books for children with dyslexia 
  • Books in larger print
  • Multi-sensory stories - these are handmade by the charity Bag Books, and presented in a large box which contains various objects that can be touched, moved, smelt, worn, played with; and relate to simple stories. These can be reserved for free via our catalogue, see also suggested reads for other similar fiction and non-fiction media.
