Monday Morning Quotations
Compiled by D. Croft
In contracted braille, spiral-bound, $9.00
Our braille catalogs always include a unique quotation on the cover. Over
the years, customers have called and written to say how much they enjoy them
and to suggest, "Why not put together a whole book of unique quotations?"
So, we did! Compiled by Diane Croft, this small spiral-bound quotation
booklet contains 52 quotes - one for each week. Every Monday, turn back
another page and see who shows up - Nathaniel Hawthorne, Carl Rogers, Steve
Jobs, Carlos Castaneda? The weekly quotes are not dated, so you can start
any time of year.

Let's Dance, Little Pookie!
By Sandra Boynton
Print/braille board book, $5.99
Ages: Baby-Preschool
In contracted braille.
Pookie's mama proposes a lively dance together. Pookie, being Pookie, is
somewhat hesitant to try something new. But little by little, Pookie is
drawn into the dance - hopping, marching, shimmying, singing, and
stretching. This perfect little board book provides a great way to get your
own little Pookies up and moving around, getting some exercise in a fun and
silly way.
