There are 4 different titles, each with a basic storyline (except 'Eat up' which is images only), with an educational slant and colourful images. There are diagrams at the bottom of each page- giving children a visual prompt to let them know where they are in the book and seperate text from the images to avoid confusion. They can be pulled apart and put back together again as they are bound using velcro, which gives good tactile stimulation.
All books are 14 x 14cm with rounded corners for safety and are wipe clean.
Choose between our 4 wipe clean, pull apart books:
A fun rhyming story book about Billy Silly – he’s as silly as can be!
A fun rhyming storybook, see what mischief Mirkythe Dog has been getting up to today!
A brightly imaged book with easy to follow text looking for Moppie the Rabbit, can you find him?
A pictorial book showing a diminishing plate of food.
How did they come about? In the words of the Author:
"I create, write and illustrate the books myself, this came about due to being a mum :-)
When my son was 9 months old he was diagnosed with a severe epileptic syndrome, it was very hard and unpredictable times, at one point he was having more than one seizure per minute, he had 4-5 different types of seizures, had to be on several medications and had developmental delays, when he started nursery they had a hard time getting him to settle for story-time, he wanted to do things that made him happy like play with the 'what's on' board pulling at the Velcro picture.
At a meeting one day his educational psychologist suggested someone make him a book incorporating the things he liked to try and engage him, this wasn't aimed at anyone in particular but I being his mum wanted to help, although at the time we were getting up 30+ times per night, every night with him and I'm sure I wasn't the one expected to do this!! however I made him 'Larry the Lawnmower' which was bound with Velcro, he loved it, he understood books could be fun with images that meant something to him and what's more he could pull it apart over and over again giving him the great sensory noise and feeling he craved.
Over the last few years his epilepsy has stabilised and with him and his younger sister in school I was left with time to think of what I'd like to do and what better thing could I think of than design other books and make them available to all children both mainstream and additional needs, there are other titles which will be added in the future with lots more book format designs ready in my head to be created, I really love what I do and I can appreciate where they came from more than anyone, it was a dark place where a desperate mum wanted to help her beautiful, struggling son to making it a bright and somewhat more positive place and now hoping to do the same for other children."
