Publisher's Summary

Blind since the age of three, young Louis Braille wanted to be able to read. He spent every spare moment punching holes in paper with a stylus until, by the age of 15, he had invented his own alphabet. This vivid biography, written by an award-winning author, allows young listeners the opportunity to identify with and to appreciate a real life hero.

The only thing is change is:

Break down the chapter selects better. Enjoyed book otherwise. example: one through eight. The book didn't have chapters but this would if you've started reading and then found this service as we have.
