Bryant, Jen Six Dots illustrated by Boris Kulikov. PICTURE BOOK. Alfred A. Knopf 2016. $17.99. Content: G.
Louis Braille was blinded at a young age. He wanted books that he could read. Even sending him to a special school that had books for the blind was not enough. Eventually Louis develops his own system of raised dots that fit under a finger, a system still used today.
This picturebook biography includes an author’s note, a “more about Braille” and a bibliography for both the man and the writing system. A real nice young people’s biography as its focus is mostly on the young boy.
