Welcome to Wigwam
Making the magic of tactile books for blind children even more magical
Fun Stuff To Do
Use the books in our library to inspire dressing up. Borrow Rapunzel: A Groovy 1970s Fairy Tale then read this blog post to get some ideas for fabulously funky costumes with a ’70s feel.
Why not write your own story or poem and create your own characters with Book Start. Jodee, one of our young library members, learned to read with our Touch to See picture books and loves them so much that she was inspired to write her own story.
Would you like your own penguin friend, like the boy in Lost and Found? You can make a 3D one with our simple instructions. Don’t forget to pop him in the fridge from time to time so that he doesn’t get too warm!
Go to a theatre show featuring your favourite storybook character. Check Ticketmaster for all the latest fun-packed, family shows in your area – and beyond!
