Feel the difference between a circle and triangle as the rhyming story guides readers through the pages, each page making information easy to understand for the tactile reader.
DK Braille: Shapes is a unique book that helps young blind or visually impaired readers learn their shapes in a format specifically designed for them.
A flagship series of high-quality, custom books with braille and tactile images for blind and partially sighted children, or sighted children with blind parents. DK Braille books combine uncontracted Unified English Braille and large type with high-contrast colors, embossed images, and tactile cutout shapes for children to feel with their fingers. The combination of text alongside the braille enables sighted parents to share the reading experience with visually impaired children, and for sighted children to share with their visually impaired parents.
