How we help schools and teachers
Our library of tactile and audio books is free to join for teachers supporting blind and partially sighted children in the UK. Our children’s library offers an ever growing range of books to support blind and partially sighted children’s reading and education, from primary through to secondary school.
Educational books for children
These high quality, in-depth books support the teaching and learning of subjects in the National Curriculum including History, Science, Geography, Music and Art. Teachers, Teaching Assistants and QTVI find these books invaluable.
Touch to See Picture Books
Original published picture books by all the top publishers, authors and illustrators, packaged with our unique added extras. Fantastic for learning to read Braille and inspiring a love of books and reading.
Literature collections for children
Children will enjoy discovering the illustrations in literary classics and treasuries such as ‘Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends’, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ and Roald Dahl. These packs contain at least five tactile pictures, each depicting one or more characters or scenes from the selected book. Audio guides evocatively describe the tactile pictures with music and sound effects.
