Ernest and I is a comforting story filled with childhood memories of the adventures and challenges of a life at sea. Sensory stories are an amazing and inclusive way to share a story through words and through sensory experiences. You have heard the phrase a picture speaks a thousand words: well this book brings you not only pictures, but tastes, sights, sounds, smells and touches as well! By collecting a few simple resources together before you read the book you will be able to share a wonderful multi- sensory adventure together. Sensory stories can be shared with anyone; this story has been created to be particularly pertinent to supporting children in nurture groups.
