Max the Reindeer Braille Design

Braille design of Max the Reindeer

Many of you will remember Max, the dog in Dr. Seuss' beloved classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".   In it the Grinch attaches antlers to Max' head to make him look like a reindeer.  This braille design is a fun way to celebrate the holidays!
