Braille Tales

Early reading develops braille awareness skills and an enthusiasm for literacy in the hearts of young children. That’s why APH offers free print/braille books for preschoolers who are blind or visually impaired. We know the future starts with our children.

If you live in the United states and have a preschooler who is blind (5 and under), we’ll send you 6 free print/braille books a year! Braille Tales books allow children to become interested in braille from a young age, encouraging them to be lifelong braille readers. We also send Braille Tales to adults who are blind and want to read to their preschoolers.

A Partnership for the Children.

APH has partnered with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library which offers free books to children across the country. Through a partnership with APH, 6 of those same books are chosen each year to be our Braille Tales books. Braille labels are added to each book, bringing the whole family together by allowing you to read braille or print.

Share the power of a good book.
