Braillebug Reading Club

I'm excited about our growing partnership with the American Foundation for the Blind, the leading foundation focused on blindness issues. One thing we just did was to fill in the last few missing titles on AFB's Braillebug Reading Club. The Braillebug web site is dedicated to promoting Braille to students who could benefit from learning Braille. The Braillebug, a ladybug with six dots on its back on top of an open book of text

Now, we have all of these recommended children's books for Braille readers on Bookshare.org in excellent quality. Because all blind students in the U.S. now qualify for Bookshare.org, this means that these books can be quickly downloaded into Braille displays or printed out with Braille embossers. We look forward to adding future books to Bookshare.org as new titles are chosen for the Braillebug reading club.
