    I’m incredibly disappointed that a book about Braille isn’t offered in Braille for children. I’ve tried to find this in twin vision (words printed and in Braille) for my blind 6 yr old so he could read it, but no luck anywhere. I’m happy to see they added the Braille alphabet and numbers on back for children that are sighted to learn a little, just disappointed they don’t offer a book about Braille in Braille.

    I'm sorry to leave a negative review of what was essentially an okay book, but I had some major issues with it.- There's an illustration of 3-year-old Louis covering his bleeding eye with his hands, and a bloody awl is lying on the ground next to him. Ew.- I tried to put a positive note into my voice and emphasize Louis's bravery, skills, and amazing resourcefulness. But it's hard to sound positive when the school he attends used to be a prison, still looks like a prison, and "he stays there for [...]

    I would highly recommended for children to read. reading this book could give you a lesson that everyone could learn that be strong and positive. the book was telling a story about the little boy named Louis Braille. he was a person created the braille system for blind people. he was born normally like the other kid. once day, he was playing with his father work tool and it poked one of his eyes. the infective spread to the other eyes so Louis ending up lost both of his eyes at young age. Louis [...]

    CIP: Presents the life of the nineteenth-century Frenchman, accidentally blinded as a child, who originated the raised dot system of reading and writing used throughout the world by the blind. Thermoform braille leaves alternate with print pages.This would be a great book for parents to read with their blind child or for a blind sibling to read with a sighted sibling as the text is printed in English and embossed in braille on plastic inserts. Text is easy to read in a storytelling format. Would [...]

    I have enjoyed most of the books from this series by David A. Adler, this book included. I felt it was well-written with good quality information. The illustrations help the story along and I liked that the story wasn't too simple. My son was especially excited to find a page at the back with the Braille alphabet for him to feel. I think this was an obvious addition for a book like this, so I was excited it was included! Definitely extra points for that. Overall a great book for learning about t [...]

    I would recommend this book for all children to read. It teaches children what being blind is and hoe Braille came about. Louis Braille was born normally, but got into an accident at a young age that resulted in him being blind. He was a very ambitious boy who never let negativity get to him. Being positive and determined lead him to do many things other kids were doing. He created the braille system so he could read again as well as other blind people.

    David Alder always does a wonderful job with his mini-biography picture books for young readers. In this book Alder briefly focused on the different periods of Louis Braille's life, the struggles he faced after loosing his sight and his devotion to creating a system of reading and writing for the blind. This is a great addition to any elementary library or classroom.

    I would use this book to teach about Louis Braille or as an example of a biography. This is a great, informative book with amazing illustrations. It tells of Louis Braille, the inventor of Braille. This book demonstrates overcoming obstacles and never giving up.

    A nicely illustrated book about Louis Braille, and the difficulties in the adoption of Braille as a standard. I especially liked how the book presented the difficulties and how he overcame them. The book had a page with the alphabet and corresponding braille.

    Adler makes the remarkable Louis Braille come to life and I would definitely add it to my biography section at school. I think this biography could work for grades 3-6, depending on the student.

    Great biography on Louis Braille, the man who helped the blind to see. Alphabet letters in braille are included in this bookAR 4.8
