These pages were crafted by students in a one week Build a Better Book camp at White Plains Public Library in NY, Summer 2018. Each page shows the alphabet letter and a word starting with that letter in both English and Braille. The matching page presents a tactile image of the word. Tactile elements were created using craft materials such as:

  • Foam
  • Pom poms
  • Feathers
  • Felt
  • Sequins
  • Coins
  • Found objects
