Comic book for blind children – level 1

23-01-2015 07:00

A man from Mexico is a writer. He makes a book for blind children. It is a comic book – there are pictures in it.

The book tells a story. It is about an astronaut. He is on a planet and he gets blind there. However, he is not alone. Aliens live on the planet. They have no eyes, but they can see. They teach the astronaut to see without eyes.

The book is a big hit. It only costs around two dollars.

Difficult words: blind (when you cannot see), astronaut (somebody who travels from a planet to another planet), alien (somebody or something from a different planet).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

It's lovely, isn't it? :-)
