Storysacks are cloth sacks containing a story book and toys, flash cards, games and factual books which illustrate the story.  The Storysacks bring the books to life and stimulate children’s interest in reading. They are particularly helpful to and enjoyed by children with learning difficulties and those whose first language is not English.

Members of SI Lancaster make Storysacks from brightly coloured materials, and they knit and sew some of the toys.  The completed sacks are then donated to the local schools, a Children’s Centre, and the local library.

We also provide Sensory Storysacks for the local library for use by adults with disabilities.

Some of the book titles for our Storysacks are:

  • The Enormous Water Melon
  • The Frog Prince
  • Whatever Next
  • Peace at Last
  • We’re going on a Bear Hunt
  • A Christmas Journey
