The Braille Institute exists to ensure that people with blindness and visual impairment get the most out of life. Part of that is giving children access to braille and literacy. To that end, they are offering free braille books and story book kits to children who are blind and live in the United States or Canada.

It’s not always easy to find children’s books in braille, especially free ones, so this is a huge boon. For full details on this program, including how to get started, check out their website.
