Discover cool cars, terrific trucks, and super ships in this wonderful guide to vehicles for young Braille readers.
A 30-page tactile reference book, DK Braille: On the Move features entries on a fascinating selection of vehicles, from cranes and cars to helicopters and even monster trucks!
What is the use of tractors and plows? How does a hot air balloon rise up? Why do submarines use sonar equipment? Find the answers to these and many more questions on every page.
Entries are written in both Braille and large print to allow readers the opportunity to learn all there is to know about common vehicles, including their makes and their functions. The entries are accompanied by large, embossed, and fully annotated illustrations. A fun quiz towards the end helps readers assess their progress and revise key learnings.
DK Braille: On The Move is a wonderful way for curious children to explore everything that drives, glides, plows, and flies.
