New inclusive books!

We are delighted with our first inclusive books for children with additional needs. Stone Soup is a picture book adapted from a traditional folk tale and Pine Cones and Thistledown is a nature-themed booklet. The feedback from children, parents and teachers has been wonderful! Huge thanks to our funders of these two book projects: Wigtown Book Festival, New Park Educational Trust, John Watson’s Trust, Spifox and Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust.
