Noah's Ark

Set includes: Print/braille picture book, print and braille "Fun Facts
About Noah's Ark," 12 delightful tactiles, all for $28

Stories about a great flood appear in ancient legends all over the
world. The biblical account, told in the Book of Genesis 6-9, tells of a
righteous man, Noah, who builds a large vessel to save his family and a
representation of the world's animals.

National Braille Press is pleased to bring the story, the man, and his
menagerie of animals to life in three ways: a print/ braille book by
five-time Caldecott Award-winner Jerry Pinkney that tells the story of
Noah; twelve delightful tactiles by tactile artist Ann Cunningham; as
well as a booklet called Fun Facts About Noah's Ark that tells you
things about turtles, penguins, giraffes, elephants, and dragonflies you
never knew!

This three-part set is meant to bring hours of conversation and learning
to the whole family or classroom.  Don't wait to order: Noah's Ark makes
a one-of-a-kind gift!

And don't forget the Braille Caravan!

Join the Braille Caravan - an amazing tactile toy from Creative
Adaptations for Learning. Made in the USA, each block of the caravan
represents a braille cell fashioned in goldenrod non-toxic plastic, with
six contrasting black pegs that glide up or down to form dots 1-6. Use
your finger, stylus, or pencil to push the peg forward from the
underside of the block, just as you would with a slate and stylus. Flip
the block over and read what you wrote. Blocks connect to form a caravan
of words, numbers, or sentences - build, challenge, and hone tactile
reading, writing, and spelling skills.

Braille Caravan includes 30 blocks in a carrying bag, an Activity
Guide,and an English Braille Symbols Chart, for only $34!
