Through the use of detailed embossing, you can feel the world's largest hailstone (three times larger than a tennis ball!) and a bird so small it can sit on the end of your thumb. Fully endorsed by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), DK Braille It Can't Be True will keep you entertained and amazed for hours.

Reviews

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
