Tayen rediscovers her love of reading with Peppa Pig
August 24, 2015

Tayen reading PeppaHi, I’m Kali Gilbert, mum of Tayen and proud Ambassador of Living Paintings. A knock at the door got Tayen’s attention and she was greeted with a box from Living Paintings. Inside was a mixture of books I’d ordered from the free library, but at the bottom was the one she wanted…Peppa Pig! Tayen reading peppa pig She ran ( yes, ran! ) into the living room and sat herself down saying, “Book please!” She immediately sought out the Braille and quickly found a great raised picture of Peppa in her wellies jumping in the muddy puddle.  Tayen sat for ages feeling the pictures, talking to me about them and turning the pages. Tayen reading peppa pig It’s a huge hit in our house.  We haven’t got round to reading the other books yet as all she wants is Peppa! Tayen is Living Paintings 10,000th library member –  watch her story. Do you and your child enjoy our Touch to See picture books as much as Kali and Tayen?  Would you like to share your experiences of reading our books or doing some of the crafts and activities we suggest in Wigwam? We’d love to hear from you. Please send your photos, book reviews, craft projects, ideas, thoughts and comments to emilyb@livingpaintings.org
