Featured Picture Book Descriptions: Grumpy Monkey

picture from Grumpy Monkey shows Jim Panzee, a small monkey with big ears and messy brown fur, hangs from a branch. He stares straight ahead with a frown on his face. A single eyebrow runs straight above his heavy-lidded eyes.

Blind kids benefit from picture descriptions every bit as much as sighted kids do from seeing the pictures. Our Great Expectations program makes describing images easy, offering picture descriptions for Grumpy Monkey, written by a descriptive audio expert.

Monique Screen-Berry, Eversource Community Relations Program Specialist, accepted the award on behalf of Eversource. Read Eversource's press release about the award here.

Read The Mueller Report's Executive Summaries in Braille

Read the two Introductions and Executive Summaries of the report from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller, III, in downloadable electronic braille (BRF). Whatever our personal politics, whether we think it has been oversold or underestimated, perhaps we should at least agree that this is a document of some magnitude, and that it would be best to form our own opinion of it.
