My Kind of Book creates and promotes books for people with additional needs and works to make picture books and stories 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.
We work in a variety of ways:
- We highlight picture books that we think would work well for children with additional needs and give suggestions as to how to turn these books into sensory stories (see our blog)
- We create bespoke books for organisations such as charities or museums who are wanting to reach out to people with complex additional needs
- We are researching how people with complex additional needs currently access books
- We are developing sensory books for children with additional needs (watch this space – online shop coming soon)
My Kind of Book is a social enterprise based in Edinburgh.
My Kind of Book was founded by Ailie Finlay of Flotsam and Jetsam puppet and storytelling company.
