Emma Bear’s Day: Book for Children with CVI

This picture book with black backgrounds and strong contrast was created by the mother of a child with CVI (cortical visual impairment)

By Lauren Seeger

I created this book, Emma Bear’s Day, for my daughter, who has CVI (cortical visual impairment).  Emma has cortical visual impairment and we have had a difficult time finding books that were suitable for her, so we decided to create our own children’s book for her and others to enjoy.

Join Emma and her friend Lucy the Bunny throughout their day of fun! Our book is great for children of all ages. The adorable character of Emma Bear will sure to be one of your kids favorites.

It has been suggested that high contrast images can be easier for kids with vision issues to see. Our books have blacked out backgrounds to increase contrast and reflective circles throughout. Details that could make seeing the characters easier for your child. Our book is filled with simple characters and bright colors.
