I have two boys. My oldest is 6 years old and is deafblind. My youngest is 3 years old and has typical vision and hearing. Every year in their Easter baskets I like to give the boys books that share the Easter Story. This year I made a book with tactile graphics and braille for my oldest son that tells the Easter Story. It is a book that he can bring with him to church and keep there to add to his collection of “Bible” books. I summarized the Easter story and kept it simple so that it was a book he could read independently (with some help).
- The wooden cut-out of a man represents Jesus. He has Velcro placed on the back of him, so that he can be moved throughout the story pages in this interactive book.
