From submarines deep in the ocean to hot-air balloons in the sky, DK Braille: On the Move covers nearly all forms of things that go and takes readers on their own exciting journey. The pages combine braille, large print, and high-contrast photography with clear and predictive layouts. Annotations offer instant information for readers, and the embossed images make new concepts as clear as possible for the tactile reader.
