Books on vision impairments for kids

Looking out for Sarah is a Schneider Family Book Award winner and is written from the perspective of Sarah's service dog, Perry. Perry helps Sarah, a blind musician and teacher, navigate her way through her day. "This true story of an amazing black Labrador retriever and his owner will inspire young readers to follow their own dreams and give them the courage to achieve anything." -publisher

Another Schneider Family Book Award winner that CeDIR recently purchased is Things Not Seen. This book is about a fifteen year old boy who suddenly turns invisible to everyone, including himself. "For Bobby that means no school, no friends, no life.  He's a missing person.  Then he meets Alicia.  She's blind, and Bobby can't resist talking to her, trusting her.  But people are starting to wonder where Bobby is.  Bobby knows that his invisibility could have dangerous consequences for his family and that time is running out.  He has to find out how to be seen again-before it's too late." -publisher
