Abstract This book consists mainly of a large number of excellent photographs with accompanying text. It introduces to the reader a number of preschool-age blind children, both boys and girls. It shows the children in their homes, playing with their siblings or their parents, eating or rejecting their food, exploring their environment—both indoors and outdoors—and, in general, just growing up. Few people—unless they are professionally engaged in work for blind children—are personally acquainted with more than a very few such children. This makes it difficult for the lay person to appreciate the fact that blind children include all types, kinds, and personalities, with nothing in common save their blindness. The book makes no attempt to minimize the fact that blindness causes problems, though sometimes it is a little overoptimistic in predicting how such problems can be overcome.
