High Contrast Books

This week Liam’s GiGi (Brian’s mom) found some great books for Liam at Kohl’s that are great for visually impaired kids. (They even have stuffed animal characters that you can buy to go with the books!) Each page has only one image on it that stands off of the white background because of its bright, solid colors, and sometimes the image covers the full two pages.  We flipped through them with Liam and because they are so large and each picture stands out so much he was able to really see them well.  They are all available to buy online as well as in stores.  Here are some pictures to illustrate what I mean about the contrast in colors needed for visually impaired kids to see. (Any books similar to this would work great you just want to look for something with good contrast so that items really stand off the page!)

This book series is by Eric Carle who is most famous for his book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
