Get the Braille Bug!

Based on the popular and enthusiastically received Braille Bug, who happily inhabits AFB's website at, The Braille Trail: An Activity Book, and its companion, The Braille Trail Parent/Teacher Guide, offer students, parents and teachers, a delightful and fascinating introduction to braille. Designed to teach sighted children about braille and to encourage literacy among all children—sighted and visually impaired—The Braille Trail offers games, activities, and a wealth of information on braille, assistive technology used by people who are visually impaired and are readers of braille, and the biographies of Helen Keller and Louis Braille. The Braille Trail: An Activity Book contains 44 pages of games, graphics, and activities that students can enjoy on their own. The Braille Trail Parent/Teacher Guide is an important companion that provides discussion questions and activities based on The Braille Trail that parents, teachers, and other group leaders can use to promote learning in a fun-packed way. Kids can even use the enclosed braille sheets to learn their names in braille and decipher secret codes. Promote braille literacy with your students in an engaging and interesting way with The Braille Trail!
