Description of this Book

Packed with astonishing facts and astounding world records, DK Braille It Can't Be True is a fascinating book designed especially for visually impaired readers. In over 70 pages you will find the world's weirdest wonders and unbelievable facts described in both braille and large print, paired with tactile images that demonstrate just how unusual the objects and events being described really are. Through the use of detailed embossing, you can feel the world's largest hailstone (three times larger than a tennis ball!) and a bird so small it can sit on the end of a pencil. Fully endorsed by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), DK Braille It Can't Be True will keep you entertained and amazed for hours.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review There is a real gap in the market for this type of resource, and the series is an exciting way to introduce younger children to reading and interpreting tactile diagrams [...] There is text alongside the braille. This is a fantastic support for parents, who may not read braille, and will allow them to read along with their children and to encourage young readers at home [...] a great resource for blind and visually impaired pupils -- TES.co.uk https://www.tes.com/news/school-news/breaking-views/class-book-review-dk-braille-series
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
