about this item
Take a walk on the wild side with DK Braille Books: Animals. Learn about lions, elephants, koalas, and more in this exciting reference book designed specifically for blind or visually impaired readers. The pages combine braille, large print, and high contrast photography with clear and predictive layouts for curious young readers. The images are large and embossed, flocked, or glossed with explanatory text, and the text is both embossed braille and printed in large text format for a shared reading experience for sighted readers. DK Braille Books: Animals is a unique reference book that presents an exciting introduction to the animal kingdom for inquiring young minds.
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. Produced in consultation with RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People), these titles combine high-contrast colors — maximizing any sight that visually impaired readers may have — with cutout shapes or embossed images for children to feel with their fingers. Large-size text is printed alongside the braille, enabling sighted parents to share the experience with visually impaired children, and for sighted children to share with their visually impaired parents.
