Six Dots by Jen Bryant - ADVISABLE

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.
