Grace loves to act out stories. When her school decides to do ‘Peter Pan’, Grace longs to play Peter, but classmates say that Peter was a boy, and besides, he wasn’t black. But her mum says she can do anything if she puts her mind to it. Grace’s books have sold a million and a half copies world wide! Read by Angela Wynter.

Hello. My name is Angela, and this is a story about a little girl who, although she enjoyed pretending to be other people, discovered that she too could do anything she wished.
On the front cover is the title 'Amazing Grace', written in large black letters. You can read it in Braille. The picture is of Grace, a pretty girl about 8 years old. She has brown skin and is looking at us and smiling a large, toothy grin (as her top two front teeth are missing!). Her hair is in two tight plaits, tied with blue and white ribbon. She's wearing a pink and white stripped blouse.
Turn the cover over to your first feely picture.
There are two pictures of Grace on this page and she is dressed in two different outfits.
- A picture book with braille pages and raised tactile images.
- Audio descriptions with music and sound effects in your chosen format of either CD or USB.
- An ‘Articles for the Blind’ returns label for the free and convenient return of the box.
