Six Dots by Jen Bryant illustrated by Boris Kulikov*

A Story of Young Louis Braille
A fascinating short biography about Louis that shares his life story from his birth through the time he created the current braille alphabet.
This inspiring story shows the value of problem solving, persevering and hard work.
Told from first person point of view.
The end pages display the braille alphabet (even the title and author/illustrator are written in braille!).
A pronunciation guide for the French words used throughout the book is in the front.
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
