Subtitle: And other questions kids ask about blindness.

by Sally Hobart Alexander

I recommend this children's book (age 9 and up) to help them 
appreciate blindness.

ISBN 0-670-88043-4
Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, 2000

Following is from the rear inside dust-jacket:

Sally Hobart Alexander is the award-winning author of six books 
for children, including two volumes of her autobiography: 
"On My Own" and "Taking Hold" (winner of the 1995 Christopher Award) 
and two photo essays: "Mom Can't See Me" and "Mom's Best Friend." 

She lost her sight completely in 1969 while teaching third grade in 
southern California, and later became a social worker until her 
children were born. For the past ten years Sally has been writing
children's books and giving talks to young and old about her experiences.
She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with her husband, and has two
grown children.

All of her books have been put on tape for the visually impaired. 

I will reread Color Blue to my grandchildren in due time.
