In my opinion, it's really up to you.  Some of the Read Aloud books would be 
read by either level of reader.  If the book has lots of words, probably 
contracted Braille because then you can get it all on the page.  Hopefully a 
parent who isn't blind answers this question because I can't remember for 
myself and my kids are just trying to master the alphabet still.

Yesterday is
A path well-trod,
A familiar lane
Through sacred sod,
A road we travel
Too often, I fear,
For there are the good times
When things are hard here,
