Reviews

Brings something very new to mainstream children's book publishing [...] A valuable new addition to the children's book landscape, this represents part of a rare breed of books that have clearly worked in close partnership with visual impairment experts to ensure that all blind and partially sighted readers are awarded full inclusion -- Book Trust http://www.booktrust.org.uk/books/view/34938 There is a real gap in the market for this type of resource, and the series is an exciting way to introduce younger children to reading and interpreting tactile diagrams [...] There is text alongside the braille. This is a fantastic support for parents, who may not read braille, and will allow them to read along with their children and to encourage young readers at home [...] a great resource for blind and visually impaired pupils -- TES.co.uk https://www.tes.com/news/school-news/breaking-views/class-book-review-dk-braille-series
