Hi there. When my parents were learning Braille they spoke with my teacher 
for the blind/visually impaired. She gave them a book called "just enough to 
know better". This was a print book but it had lessons/exercises for both 
grade 1 and grade 2 Braille. It also had things written soely in Braille for 
practice. I remember I used to steal the book and read all the stories in 
Braille. <grin> Ask the person you're working with and maybe she can get the 
book for you.
Hope this helps!
Hope and guide dog, Beignet

>> Hello all,
