Once upon a time there was a boy called Charlie Cook who curled up in a cosy chair and read his favourite book…
There are so many books in this book, so many stories, so many characters and so many worlds! Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book is a wonderful story, using Julia Donaldson’s lively rhyming and Axel Scheffler’s characteristic artwork to get kids really excited about story time. Our story sack adds even more, giving items to explore that relate to all the tales, as well as talking points about stories, about books and their elements, with crafts and activities to explore the stories, the scenery, and to find ways to help children tell their own stories.
Bring this family favourite story to life with our lovingly created multi-sensory story sack, packed to the brim with themed objects and toys for you and your little ones to enjoy. Each story sack contains your chosen book, gorgeous puppets from the Puppet Company, Lanka Kade wooden creatures, props including toys, natural objects, and other carefully curated items to help you to enact and investigate the story and to provide a basis for themed play. But that’s not all, each story sack comes with a different activity sheet full of suggested ways to explore the book and its themes further with the whole family, from the youngest infant to the most doting of grandparents, these charming story sacks will bring books to life like never before.
Our story sacks are not only designed to add a new play dimension to story time, but to stimulate their brain development, engaging all of their senses with their variety of colour, texture, sounds, movement and materials in ways shown to be critical for the development of young minds. Each of our story sacks is also available to hire or as part of our Story Sack Club if you’re keen to experience the full range!
