Louis Braille: the boy who invented books for the blind, by Margaret Davidson, TW1784, 6th Scholastic paperback printing, 1977, 80 pages. Illustrated by Janet Compere. There is a raised alphabet in braille on the back cover.
DESCRIPTION: “Louis Braille was only twelve years old. And he was blind. But he made up his mind- somehow he was going to invent an easy way for all blind people to read and write.
It took Louis three years to work out his alphabet of raised dots. With this alphabet, blind people could read as fast as other people. Today, almost all books for the blind are printed in the alphabet called braille. Blind people read braille with their fingertips.”
