National Braille Press April 2014 Book Selection

Cover of Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse

Each month NBP (National Braille Press) selects a book to feature in print/braille.  This month's selection is Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse by Leo Lionni, which is in contracted braille for children through age 8.  It is the story of a wind-up mouse, who is well-loved and played with by children, and a real mouse who is chased away.  Children can explore lessons about friendship in the tale about a mechanical mouse and a real mouse.
