Comic book for blind children – level 2

23-01-2015 07:00

A Mexican writer created a comic book for blind children. The book is about an astronaut who crashes on a planet and loses his sight. Aliens with no eyes live on the planet, and they teach the astronaut to see the world by using other senses.

The writer will sell the book for about two dollars, and he will use the money to buy glasses for schoolchildren in Mexico. The comic book is a big hit. The international community for the blind say that everyone needs more books like this.

Difficult words: sight (the ability to see), alien (somebody from a different planet), sense (one of the five powers of sight, hearing, feeling, taste and smell).

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

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