Some Kids Are Blind

Product Details

Reviews

Children are naturally curious about the differences in themselves and other people. This is especially noted in comparing themselves to other children their age. Children who are blind often seem to attract attention because they appear not to be looking straight at an object, whether it is a computer they are using or a book they are reading. These children have learned to use their sense of touch and hearing to compensate for their loss of sight. The reader is introduced to the use of Braille and the assistive devices of guide dogs and canes to help blind people in their everyday lives. This series, called "Understanding Differences" includes four titles dealing with children who are blind, deaf, wear leg braces, and use wheelchairs. Short, manageable repeated text, generous font, and clear illustrations make these titles the perfect teaching tools for the early reader. Capstone does an admirable job of providing additional resources, including their FactHound website, which pre-selects appropriate websites for further research, based on the Book ID that the reader types in. A glossary, an index, and reading suggestions make this an excellent choice for elementary library and classroom collections. The repetition of words and phrases helps young readers to learn new words, and subject specific words introduce vocabulary. The series has been keyed to the National Social Studies and Health curriculums.-- "Children's Literature Comprehensive Database"
