A very informative story of the history of Louis Braille, the man who was given credit for creating a system for people who are blind to read. Braille actually improved and restructured a method that was already in place but he deserves all the credit he receives. The history of how people who were blind were treated in the 1800's is not very flattering. luckily change occurs during Louis' lifetime. A really good book for introducing the power of people with exceptionalities.
