What is a Story Sack / literacy Bag? 

eric-carle-story-sack-long-one.jpg

A story sack is a cloth bag containing a favorite children's book with supporting materials to stimulate language activities and make reading a memorable and enjoyable experience.

A story sack contains a range of items to support a particular book; usually including a copy of the book, possibly a CD or tape of the story or related rhymes and songs, soft toys or plastic characters from the story, and often a non-fiction book related to the theme.

Story Sacks are about making books fun and bringing stories to life. For use at both school and in the home, a Story Sack is a bag full of wonderful resources to encourage children and adults to enjoy reading together.

What better way to get a child interested in reading than by getting them involved with the story in the book. Imagine the fun of not only reading about the characters of the story but also by being able to role-play with the characters, retell the story or play a related game!

The Story Sacks here at Tree Top Book Shop are designed for home use and form the basic foundation of a Story Sack set. Each Story Sack can be developed and expanded by you to suit your childs’ individual preferences!

Here are some ideas for supporting resources…

  • A non-fiction book relating to a theme in the picture book
  • Artifacts relating to objects found in the story
  • A CD with related rhymes or songs
  • Play dough/model magic/clay - excellent for making your own version of the characters in the book!
  • Pictures of related places or events

Please Enjoy!
