Written by Menena Cottin, illustrated by Rosana Faría, translated by Elisa Amado

Living with the use of one's eyes can make imagining blindness difficult, but this innovative title invites readers to imagine living without sight through remarkable illustrations done with raised lines and descriptions of colors based on imagery. Braille letters accompany the illustrations and a full Braille alphabet offers sighted readers help reading along with their fingers. This extraordinary title gives young readers the ability to experience the world in a new way.

*Note that some reviewers have commented that the Braille is not very readable to blind/VI readers due to not being raised enough
