The Partners Print/Braille Book Program

We are approved!!! Liam was approved for the Partners Print/Braille Book Program, a partnership between Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and the American Printing House for the Blind. The goal of Dolly Parton's program: to provide six books a year, every year of a child's life up to six years of age, to encourage early reading and a love for books in small children. The goal of their partnership with American Printing House for the Blind is to provide these books in Braille for children with visual impairments.
We had almost forgotten that we had applied in the first place, since they have a decent waiting list, until we received our first braille book in the mail. We are so excited to be receiving these books to work with Liam on his Braille as he grows. One day this boy will love to dive into a book just like his parents do, only his books with be much thicker with their textured pages.
