Ailie Finlay, founder of My Kind of Book

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.
