Child playing with book, lying down with feet up and book balanced on them


My Kind of Book creates and promotes books for people with additional needs and works to make picture books more accessible for everyone. We believe that everyone can enjoy a good story and we are particularly interested in ensuring that children with complex additional needs have books to enjoy.

Current projects

We are currently working with artist/illustrator Kate Leiper on two wonderful projects.

And there’s more in the pipeline – watch this space!

Online sensory story videos

We are very happy to be working with Wigtown Book Festival to create online sensory story and rhyme resources. These story videos work equally well at home or in school.
