Our Tactile Books

Scottish Book Trust is delighted to be able to provide a supply of tactile titles for children with Additional Support Needs. These books are a fantastic additional resource for families alongside their regular Bookbug bags.

We have three titles from Usborne’s award-winning series of books: That’s Not My Dragon, That’s Not My Train, and That’s Not My Monkey. These brightly illustrated books have touchy-feely textures to explore and a simple, repetitive storyline.

In addition, we also have three tactile titles published by Child’s Play. Off to the Park, Off to the Beach, and Getting Ready have been developed in consultation with children, families and organisations working with blind and partially-sighted children, and contain high-contrast images, tactile features and Braille-style numbering. They are suitable for children with a variety of different additional support needs.

You can request all of these tactile books from your local Bookbug Co-ordinator. You can also listen to the audio versions of Off to the Park, Off to the Beach, and Getting Ready below and watch families sharing some of our books on our website.
