Amazing Activities for Blind Kids

Book cover for Amazing Grace

NBP's new Great Expectations selection, Amazing Grace, inspires all kids to believe in themselves and follow their dreams. In the book, Grace's imagination empowers her to audition for the school play, even when her classmates tell her she can't be the lead in Peter Pan because she is a girl and she is African American. NBP has created activities and resources especially for blind kids to bring this story to life.
