The adaptation was supported by creator of Spot Eric Hill: “I am delighted and very touched that Spot has been selected for one of these wonderful packs. It is fantastic news that Spot’s world will be introduced to preschool children who would not otherwise have been able to enjoy it. I very much appreciate the talent and creativity that has gone into creating these superb packs, which are beautifully presented.”
Fun With Spot™ includes a version of Spot Goes to the Farm by Eric Hill that has been especially adapted to be accessible to blind children aged 2 and up. For the very first time they can explore and have fun with the much loved pictures of Spot alongside their sighted friends. The pack goes beyond simple story telling to incorporate key skills for developing literacy and life skills for blind and partially sighted pre-school children.
