Louis Braille certainly wasn't your average teenager. Blind from the age of four, he was only fifteen when in 1824 he invented a reading system that converted printed words into columns of raised dots. Through touch, Braille opened the world of books to the sightless, and almost two hundred years later, no one has ever improved upon his simple, brilliant idea.

An inspiring picture-book biography of Louis Braille—a blind boy so determined to read that he invented his own alphabet. **Winner of a Schneider Family Book Award!** Louis Braille was just five years old when he lost his sight. He was a clever boy, determined to live like everyone else, and what he wanted more than anything was to be able to read. Even at the school for the blind in Paris, there were no books for him. And so he invented his own alphabet—a whole new system for writing that could be read by touch. A system so ingenious that it is still used by the blind community today. Award-winning writer Jen Bryant tells Braille’s inspiring story with a lively and accessible text, filled with the sounds, the smells, and the touch of Louis’s world. Boris Kulikov’s inspired paintings help readers to understand what Louis lost, and what he was determined to gain back through books. An author’s note and additional resources at the end of the book complement the simple story and offer more information for parents and teachers. Praise for Six Dots: "An inspiring look at a child inventor whose drive and intelligence changed to world—for the blind and sighted alike."—Kirkus Reviews "Even in a crowded field, Bryant’s tightly focused work, cast in the fictionalized voice of Braille himself, is particularly distinguished."—Bulletin, starred review "This picture book biography strikes a perfect balance between the seriousness of Braille’s life and the exuberance he projected out into the world." — School Library Journal, starred review

Louis Braille: A Touch of Genius is the first ever, full-color biography to include thirty-one of his extant letters, some written by his own hand, and translated into English for the first time.Three great men were born in the early weeks of January 1809: Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, and Louis Braille. Only one has remained virtually unknown ? the man who invented a means of reading and writing still used today in almost every country in the world, adapted to almost every known language from Albanian to Zulu.Born sighted, Louis Braille accidentally blinded himself at the age of 3. He was lucky enough to be sent to a school for blind children in Paris, one of the first in the world. There, at the age of sixteen, he worked tirelessly on a revolutionary system of finger reading that became braille. He was a talented musician, astute businessman, and genius inventor ? collaborating with another Frenchman to invent the first dot-matrix printer around 1840.

점자를 만든 사람 루이 브라유 11권 ‘루이 브라유’ 편은 맹인들을 위한 점자 알파벳을 만든 눈 먼 소년 루이 브라유의 이야기입니다. 3살 때 송곳에 눈이 찔리는 사고로 맹인이 된 소년 루이 브라유는 책을 읽고 공부하고 싶다는 열망으로 맹인들을 위한 글자를 만들기에 이릅니다. 자신도 앞이 보이지 않는 상황에서 새로운 글자를 만드는 일은 무척 어려웠습니다. 하지만 포기하지 않고 도전한 결과 누구나 쉽고 빠르게 읽고 쓸 수 있는 점자 알파벳을 발명하게 됩니다. 장애인들은 일반인보다 뒤떨어진 생활을 하는 것이 당연히 여겨지던 당시에는 점자 알파벳이 사람들의 환영을 받지 못했지만, 루이 브라유가 세상을 떠난 지 100년 후에는 전 세계 많은 사람들이 그를 기리게 됩니다. 권말에 있는 워크북에는 단어 찾기, 단어 퀴즈, 문장 표현 연습, 루이 브라유 관련 퀴즈, 점자 퀴즈, 점자 알파벳에 대한 배경 지식이 들어 있습니다.
