ClearVision Children's Braille Library

ClearVision is a UK postal lending library of mainstream children's books with added braille. Our books all have braille (or Moon), print and pictures, making them suitable for visually-impaired and sighted children and adults to share. There are over 13,000 books in the collection, including tactile board books, simple stories for young children and stimulating books for newly fluent readers. We have fiction and non-fiction in grade 1 and grade 2 braille - everything a young reader could want from The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Thomas the Tank Engine to Katie Morag, the Sheep-Pig, books about space and the Oxford Reading Tree.

We also have a collection of around 1000 tactile image books, mostly handmade, in which all the images are designed to be explored by touch. These can be borrowed by schools, nurseries, Sensory Support Services etc. for children aged 3 and over.
