Our Place
Monica and Brad Start School
by Hyacinth Grey

Brad and Monica are five-year-old twins, who are just about to start school. Both of them are blind, so they will learn to read and write using braille. At school, they meet Mrs. Perkins, their teacher, and Mr. Ishikawa, a teaching assistant. They make new friends and have fun singing. The only problem is that one of them does not like reading, and the other one hates math! Our Place: Monica and Brad Start School is written in both print and braille. It is an engaging and educational story, and readers of all ages will have fun learning how braille works. The print, braille, and illustrations in this book are all in a visual form, so it is not accessible to tactile readers. For updates on this topic, please visit:

“. . . sensitive and informative . . .” — Foreword Clarion Reviews

Hyacinth Grey loves to write. Her husband, Michael, is blind, and together they want to tell a story that also teaches about braille.
