About us

"To learn to read YES, but to read WHAT ?"
Even in most of the rich countries, young severe partially sighted and young blind children have nearly no books adapted to their handicap. Can we imagine a sighted child arriving in First Grade without having handled one single book ? No. That's why in 1994, a teacher and some parents established Dreaming Fingers. A tactile illustrated book is a long work to design, has 2 writings (large print & Braille), pictures in relief made with material cut and glued, strong color's contrasts, and a special binding (tactile ergonomy), all this for few amount of copies, thus handmade. Our workshop employs only people with social disabilities; " people excluded from work produce books for children excluded from reading". Yes those books are more expansive to produce (4h/handwork/copy), but if reading is a Right for all children, those children have it too.
