    Does a great job of explaining the entire process of how braille book is made. Wonderful descriptions of what it would look like and all of the parts. Has a wonderful technical information. Lots of audio description of what is happening on the screen as well as good dialogue is a fun show for kids to watch about braille books is good for any low vision or blind kid who uses braille as well as mainstream classrooms so they understand the process and what it is
