BRAILLE BUG


Almost 200 years ago, a boy named Louis Braille invented a way to read by touching bumps on a page! Today, the Braille system is used in many languages, and also for music and math.

An Overview of the Braille Bug Site provides parents and teachers with an introduction to this website and its contents. Students will get a good start by exploring 'Braille: Deciphering the Code.'

At Braille Bug, you can print out a Braille alphabet-and-number key, or send away for a free Braille alphabet card. Also, there are games, puzzles, riddles, rhymes, fun activities, and a Reading Club with featured books.

This website is published by the American Foundation for the Blind and includes kid friendly information about Louis Braille, as well as the Helen Keller Kids' Museum Online.
