Dear teachers and parents of blind and visually impaired children,
ABLE is excited to make available free of charge a braille and print copy of the book “Our Bodies Stay Home, our Imaginations Run Free” by Lora L. Hyler.
The one-volume braille book will be available in either interpoint contracted braille or interpoint uncontracted braille.
Please fill out the form below in order to receive your free braille and print copy of the book. Priority will be placed on Wisconsin students first.
“Our Bodies Stay Home, Our Imaginations Run Free” helps children ages 6-12+ navigate their scary new world due to the coronavirus. Seven-year-old Maya is struggling with her feelings as she misses her classmates and teacher, her friends, her grandparents, and visits to her favorite places. And even worse, her 8th birthday is coming up during quarantine. How can she possibly have a party? With her family’s help, Maya understands she needs to do her part to help her family and community. Practicing proper handwashing, wearing a mask, and social distancing is needed. She finds joy in making masks, watching nature and creative play from afar. Maya is amazed when she has the best 8th birthday party ever.”
With much appreciation to HenschelHAUS Publishing, Inc, for the quantity discount on the print books.
This project is possible because of a grant from the UPS Foundation.
