A good way to tell the story. It covered all the basic facts, but wasn't too "textbook" like.
A very concise book outlining Louis Braille's life. What an incredible man to defy expectations and create something so incredible.
A sad start when he loses his sight, but even as a young boy he created the Braille system used all around the world!
This is a biography of Louis Braille. Never has a more beautiful, poignant book been written. Louis was not born blind; rather a childhood accident plunged him into darkness. Through hard work and dedication he pulled himself out of darkness - the result was "braille" the system of reading and writing for the blind. This system, which Louis Braille founded in the nineteenth century is in use even today with little modification. The world owes a great debt to Louis Braille and we as readers likewise owe Russell Freedman a debt for bringing us this story of Louis Braille. The book may be a biography for children, but adults will enjoy it too.
