On your mark, get ready, go!

Join the race where your child imagines their fingers are a dragon, and they lead their dragon through a maze.

This maze is braille and it's a fun way to practice tracking a line of braille print from left to right and top to bottom.

Braille Tracking

Baby boy feels braille with one hand

Learning to read braille begins long before children recognize braille letters. One early skill is learning to track a line of braille.

Some children have limited or no use of one hand — they can play the braille dragon games with only one hand.

Learn more about beginning braille skills at Wonderbaby!
