Little Paths is the latest book for emerging tactile readers. Available from APH (American Printing House for the Blind), Little Paths was written by Catherine Colin and is ideal for promoting tracking skills and encouraging texture discrimination. It is intended to be read aloud and shared with children who are visually impaired.
This simple tactile book features more than 10 diverse textures for the young child to trace with his or her fingers. Set against a black background, the colorful paths are easily seen and felt. The print/braille text, contracted Unified English Braille (UEB), tells the story of rough, rugged paths, paths that zig and zag, and paths like waves.
