A Picture Book of Louis Braille

Straight forward text and illustrations illuminate the life of Louis Braille for young people in this biography by David A. Adler.  The content, not the style, in this book is why you will read this to your children since it comprehensively explains Braille’s childhood, blindness and education which led to his invention of the braille system.  An extra is the actual braille alphabet in the back pages.  Kids will love to explore this page, spell out their names and try to read the braille alphabet.
