If you’re an adult who reads braille and would like books to read with sighted children, you’re welcome to join ClearVision. We lend books so people can read with their children, grandchildren, siblings, nephews, nieces, cousins and children of friends, or with children at their local school or library. Membership is free. Once you have joined, we will send you six books and we ask you to change three at a time, as often as you like. You can keep books for up to six months. You are welcome to contact us at any time to comment on our books and update us on what sort of books you’d like.
Some ClearVision books have been especially adapted for braille-reading adults to share with sighted children. As well as the text of the story in braille, these have added picture descriptions in braille and braille labels so you can point out items of interest in the picture to a sighted child. We also have very simple board books with braille labels so that adults can share them with sighted babies and toddlers, including ones to help young children learn concepts such as colour and shape.
