My tie is a scarf for a cold giraffe, my shirt’s on a boat as a sail for a goat, but look me up and down, I’m the smartest giant in town.
What really matters in life? George the giant finds out when, bit by bit, his super smart new clothes are handed to friends he meets who are in need. He may not look so smart, but his kindness really sets George apart. This book can be used to talk and frame play around many themes; judgment, kindness and friendship; types of clothes and dressing up; how many animals can you spot? What kinds can you see? With creative activities, sensory objects and toys, play ideas, and talking points, who knew story time could provide so many hours of fun?!
Bring this family favourite story to life with our lovingly created multi-sensory story sack, packed to the brim with themed objects and toys for you and your little ones to enjoy. Each story sack contains your chosen book, gorgeous puppets from the Puppet Company, Lanka Kade wooden creatures, props including toys, natural objects, and other carefully curated items to help you to enact and investigate the story and to provide a basis for themed play. But that’s not all, each story sack comes with a different activity sheet full of suggested ways to explore the book and its themes further with the whole family, from the youngest infant to the most doting of grandparents, these charming story sacks will bring books to life like never before.
Our story sacks are not only designed to add a new play dimension to story time, but to stimulate their brain development, engaging all of their senses with their variety of colour, texture, sounds, movement and materials in ways shown to be critical for the development of young minds. Each of our story sacks is also available to hire or as part of our Story Sack Club if you’re keen to experience the full range!
