My New Braille Books
I got these books yesterday. It's a Braille collection published by DK publishing house. The books are just brilliant! They are printed in regular print and in Grade 1 Braille. However, it's not just the text that is special in these books. The illustrations are "double", as well. All the pictures are very visual and printed in bright colours. At the same time they are also tactile. Every illustration has raised edges, so that the object in the photo can be discovered by touch, as well. But that's not all. The illustrations are also textured. The book "Counting", for example, has an illustration of "nine sticky worms" in it. The worms are actually sticky to the touch! An illustration of a zebra is soft and fuzzy to represent the animal's fur, etc.
These books are absolutely fantastic! The best thing about them is that they can be shared by blind or visually impaired and sighted readers!
