Abstract:

Six dots: a story of young Louis Braille [by Jen Bryant] - "Award-winning writer Jen Bryant tells Braille's inspiring story with a lively and accessible text, filled with the sounds, the smells, and the touch of Louis's world. Boris Kulikov's inspired paintings help readers to understand what Louis lost, and what he was determined to gain back through books."

Taariq learns braille [by Tracilyn George] - "Taariq lost his sight at a very young age. He needed to learn Braille so he could read books. His teacher was very patient in teaching him the letters of the alphabet with the raised dots. Taariq became very excited when he learned his first word."

Farm [by Emma Grange] - "A high-quality LEGO DUPLO book with braille and tactile images for blind and partially sighted parents and children to share with their sighted family members. Produced in consultation with braille experts, this LEGO DUPLO board book explores LEGO DUPLO farm animals such as pigs and cows, and vehicles, such as tractors. It combines high-contrast colors with embossed images of the models for children to feel. Large-size text is printed alongside the braille, enabling sighted children to share the bonding experience of reading with their visually impaired parents, or for sighted parents to share with their visually impaired children."

Off to the park [by Stephen Cheetham] - "Conceived and designed in association with Booktrust, and developed in consultation with children, families and organizations working with blind and partially-sighted children, OFF TO THE PARK is a unique project that seeks to include all children in the reading experience. Containing tactile features, Braille-style numbering, play elements, high-contrast images and a rhythmic rhyming text, this book is designed to create as sensory and involved experience as possible out of a familiar and well-loved journey."

Braille Alphabet Board - "Great Teaching Tool - Fantastic way to help sighted individuals learn to read braille. Laser Engraved - The dots and numbers are laser engraved on each board so you don't have to worry about them fading over time. This means the dots are NOT raised. Perfect for the Classroom and Homeschooling - If you are a teacher or home-school parent this braille learning board is one of the best ways to incorporate the language in your curriculum."
