The Magic of Reading Braille

52903204_1606612021640058_r.jpegStephen King once said that "books are a uniquely portable magic"! Well , what is more magical than reading your first Harry Potter book? NOTHING! As many of you know my niece Emrie was born with a very rare gene anomaly that left her with out vision. This has limited Emrie in very few ways as she is one of the most amazingly gifted and smartest little girls. Emrie learned braille when she was only 4 and is now reading years above her age level. My brother Jared and her started reading the Harry Potter novels a little over 6 months ago. Jared would read to her each night and they would relive the magic for days as Emrie never forgot a single detail of the wonderful world she heard her daddy read about. They have recently stopped reading them because Emrie wants to read them herself, she wants to put her finger to the paper and fly through Hogwarts too. Unfortunately, we soon discovered that the Harry Potter books in Braille are extremely expensive and not very accessible. Many libraries do not even have them as an option. This broke my heart. The Harry Potter books range from $80- $300 for just one single book, this is a shame as everyone should have access to book! I am hoping with a little help that we can give this little girl the gift of magic for Christmas as well as possibly supply the local libraries with a set too. Any donation would help and my family would be so grateful. Thank you!
