Who doesn’t love to have a story read to them?? I’ve recently discovered the joy of audio books, and I totally love hearing a story come to life with characters and voices, and the utterly joyful feeling of having someone else’s words wash over me.

I started reading aloud to my children when they were very young – some might say too young because, ok, they were newborns – but you can never start too soon to introduce kids to the concept of language and literacy. And honestly I think it was the years of my constant reading to them that has given them their love of books today.

This nifty device looks like eyeglasses, but works stealthily to help the child who needs an eye patch. Designed for children ages 3-10, the soft rubber frames and unisex design overcomes the awkwardness of wearing a patch. They can also be used as prescription glasses, solving two problems in one.

Read the full description, including how and where to get them (hint: your eye doctor needs to be involved).

Reading to kids when they’re little is a great way to introduce them to literature, and to set them on the path to being good readers themselves. But when your kid is blind and can’t see all the beautiful illustrations in the picture books made for small children, how do you help them experience the whole story? Some of us are natural performers but for those who aren’t, you might want to check out the National Braille Press’ Great Expectations program.
