Everyone deserves a good story

My Kind of Book creates and promotes inclusive books and sensory stories for people with additional needs and works to make picture books more accessible for everyone.

Current Projects

As well as research we are currently working on the first of our sensory folktales series and have several other inclusive books in the pipeline. And of course we continue to run sensory story sessions and training.

Inclusive folk tale books

We are delighted to be working with illustrator Kate Leiper on the first of our sensory folk tales series. This has been made possible with funding from Wigtown Book Festival, New Park Educational Trust and the John Watson’s Trust.

Ground-breaking new books

Creative Scotland Lottery funded

We are working on two research projects, one funded by Creative Scotland and the other by the Connected Innovators scheme. These projects are allowing us to explore book use in special schools, and to create prototype books and a toolkit for inclusivity for children’s authors, illustrators and publishers.
