The guiding purposes of National Braille Press are to promote the literacy of blind children through braille and to provide access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs.

Video Highlights

Former Boston College student, Stephanie Fernandes, was featured in this video on how braille was integral to her success. Stephanie continues to impress and recently passed the Bar Exam in Pennsylvania.

Great Expectations!

Great Expectations logo is a drawing of a blind girl and a dog on top of a big braille book. The tagline is, Bringing picture books to life for blind kids.

The single most important thing you can do to help a child prepare for school is to read aloud to that child. It begins with picture books, packed with new vocabulary and colorful illustrations. But what if the child is blind? Read how NBP's new literacy program for blind kids is addressing this critical need.

Book cover for Henry and Mudge

Henry and Mudge: The First Book - the February selection in our Children's Braille Book Club - marks the return of a best-selling favorite. In this first book in the popular series, Henry, a lonely only child, finally convinces his parents to get him a dog!

The story resonates with young readers. One Amazon reviewer commented, "My son, a kindergartener, was truly driven to read by Henry and Mudge and their fun, loving relationship. He now reads to his delighted 3 year old brother."
