Louis Braille was just five years old when he lost his sight. He was a clever boy, determined to live like everyone else, and what he wanted more than anything was to be able to read. Even at the school for the blind in Paris, there were no books for him. And so he invented his own alphabet--a whole new system for writing that could be read by touch. A system so ingenious that it is still used by the blind community today.

Wonderful story of "it takes a village to raise a child" as well as positive thinking. Prior to reading this book, I did not know the story of Louis Braille. Here was a boy who didn't want pity, he just wanted to learn and everyone around him worked to help him. I think children in grades 1-4 would enjoy this story, especially if they are curious about the Braille letters they find on signs and elevators in their community. I highly recommend it! (I only wish the publisher had included raised Braille letters for students to feel.)
