You know that National Braille Press provides print/braille picture books for children, but have you ever really thought about what that means?

Personally, I love stories that have a connection to my life, and that describe someone dealing with a situation I might be in myself. And as a parent of a child with special needs, I like to hear stories of adults grappling with the same special needs, to see how it all might work out for my own child.
