What is it like to be blind?
People who are blind learn ways to use their senses of touch and hearing in order to sense the world around them. Readers will learn about the tools they use, including canes and seeing eye dogs, to travel and to be independent. First-hand stories of children who are blind help readers get a personal look at some kids who see the world in a different way.
