Louis Braille: Teacher of the Blind
(Physically Challenged, nonfiction series)
written by Jennifer Fisher Bryant
Chelsea House, 1994
ISBN 978-0791020906

An accident at the age of three left Louis Braille blind for life. Louis’ family knew he possessed a brilliant mind, so they made sure he received the best possible education. Working from memory alone, Louis earned top scores in school. At the age of 10, he enrolled in the Royal Institute for the blind and before the age of 15 he developed his alphabet of raised dots read with the fingertips, which allowed blind people to read and write. Today it is the gateway for millions of blind people to unlimited knowledge and success.
