Little Black Book of Colors (Menena Cottin)

Book summary from Good Reads:

Living with the use of one's eyes can make imagining blindness difficult, but this innovative title invites readers to imagine living without sight through remarkable illustrations done with raised lines and descriptions of colors based on imagery. Braille letters accompany the illustrations and a full Braille alphabet offers sighted readers help reading along with their fingers. This extraordinary title gives young readers the ability to experience the world in a new way.

This book would be great to use with our Hearing and Sound unit in science. We had two presentations during that unit and each time the kids had a lot of questions not only about the deaf world, but about blindness too.

This book is simple and very beautiful and really gives you a lot to think about.
