Seedlings Braille Books for Children is pleased to announce that we have just added a wonderful new group of books to our catalog, bringing our total number of titles available in braille to 1,000! 

These books range from Print-Braille-&-Picture Books for toddlers and preschoolers (like "Clifford's Animal Sounds" and "Curious George at the Zoo," to 2-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 President, we have added a biography of Barack Obama, and one about Michelle Obama as well! 

To view a list of all the new books, please go to http://www.seedlings.org/whatsnew.php 

To read about all 1,000 titles, you can go to www.seedlings.org and click on "Order Our Books & Gifts." These books are sold for a fraction of their production cost to keep the prices affordable for you. 

The Seedlings 2010 Catalog is now available and will be mailed soon. You can download the textfile version from our website: www.seedlings.org
