Goodnight Moon to Touch
Print/braille book; 20 tactiles; and a descriptive guide: $30
"I applaud NBP for its commitment to this book. Early exposure to tactile
graphics makes a huge difference; I know it did in my life."
- Deborah Kent Stein, author
"Goodnight Moon" has delighted children and grown-ups since 1947, and now
blind children and adults can explore the "great green room" by touch!
Precious few picture books for blind children actually contain pictures.
Those that do are often special books with special graphics rather than
beloved classics. So we decided to challenge ourselves and make "Goodnight
Moon" a real picture book. Clearly most pages were too busy to replicate in
full, so we asked artist Irma Goldberg (Creative Adaptations for Learning)
to re-create only those images mentioned in the text - the bowl of mush, the
comb, the mittens, and so forth. If you've ever wondered what the pictures
look like in "Goodnight Moon," you're in for some surprises - at least
that's what we heard from those who got a preview.
There are three pieces to the set:
- 20 tactiles
- a guide for navigating around the images as well as more descriptive text
about the pictures in the book
- a print/braille edition of Goodnight Moon
