Bag Books bring joy to the lives of people with learning disabilities. Can you imagine a world without books in it? That is the reality for thousands of people with profound learning disabilities; words on a page are meaningless and two dimensional pictures cannot be understood.

This is why Bag Books exists; it brings to life the wonderful world of books and stories to those whose learning disabilities mean they cannot benefit from conventional books.

A Bag Books story is no ordinary book; it is unbound, its pages are A3 and it comes in a box. Each one also features an array of objects to feel and move; things to smell and sounds to activate. The books are multi-sensory – designed to engage sight, sound, touch, smell and motion. They are also unique – no other charity in the UK publishes multi-sensory books.
