Stories play an important part in children's development, the importance of reading to and sharing stories with your children from an early age can not be underestimated.

This quote from the Literacy Trust describes perfectly, the impact of reading to and with your child.

"There can be few things as powerful as regularly reading to a young child. It has astonishing benefits for children: comfort and reassurance, confidence and security, relaxation, happiness and fun. Giving a child time and full attention when reading them a story tells them they matter. It builds self-esteem, vocabulary, feeds imagination and even improves their sleeping patterns. Yet fewer than half of 0–2-year-olds are read to every day or nearly every day by their parents."

Research from The University of Sheffield commissioned by the Book trust, found clear links between the positive social mobility outcomes for children who develop reading and writing skills, meaning that their opportunity for employment is better as they become an adult.  

With this in mind, I have created a range of story sacks. These promote and encourage parents to share stories and books with their children from an early age. The sacks contain a copy of the book and a range of props made to support the telling of the story. These props also encourage children to re-enact the stories in their play as they get older, even developing the story to take on different outcomes.

The props are made in a variety of ways, hand painted, pyrography etc. they are sealed to protect them and all are stored in a bag for safe keeping and transport.  

I am able to make story sack's for any book if you have a specific book that you and your child particularly enjoy this is not a problem to make.  Price for the story sacks does vary dependent on which story, there for I would recommend you contact me for further details before placing your order.
