Read full description of the books Louis Braille: The Boy Who Invented Books for the Blind:An Eye Opening Book on a Boy Who Taught the World a New Way to See
Having read several of Margaret Davidson's books, I admit I have a certain brand loyalty, an admiration for her writing. I heartily recommend anything by Ms. Davidson, and this little book is no exception. As with her biography on Thomas A. Edison, the subject of this book had to overcome great obstacles. As Ms. Davidson points out, the blind (and the deaf, for that matter) were often not considered able to be taught. Young Louis was fortunate to have a very understanding father, who was able to find an opportunity for his son at a larger school in Paris. There, he flourished, his young mind not only able to absorb learning, but also apply it. At twelve, he would start to create the alphabet that still bears his name. This is the story of this world-famous alphabet and the boy who invented it.
Margaret Davidson treats her subject - and audience - with great respect and tells his story in the sympathetic way for which she is known. Children can learn a lot from reading the biographies of people who led noteworthy, if not extraordinary lives. This sentiment holds especially true for this wonderful little book, where the subject is both someone who was able to use his gifts to overcome harsh obstacles and an example of how adults can learn from the children they teach.
