Seedlings Braille Books for Children is pleased 
to announce that a wonderful new group of books 
has just been added to our catalog, bringing the 
total number of titles available in braille to 
1,000. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = 
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

These books range from Print-Braille-&-Picture 
Books for toddlers and preschoolers like 
“Clifford’s Animal Sounds” and “Curious 
George at the Zoo,” to two-volume novels for 
teens and “tweens” (Newbery Honor Book 
“Elijah of Buxton” for example). And there 
are many great books in between (some “Magic 
Tree House” books and “Black Lagoon Adventures” among others).

Also, in honor of our new <?xml:namespace prefix 
= st1 ns = 
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />US 
President, we have added a biography of Barack 
Obama, and one about Michelle Obama!
