Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

I loved how it included a table of contents, labels, and other non-fiction conventions that would be included in books that his peers would be reading in class!

What reviewers didn't like

The braille dots could be raised a bit more. My son did not have any problem reading the braille, but my concern is that it may wear down quickly and is not as easy to read as it could be.
