A songbook for blind children - a multilingual children's songbook with texts and scores in print and braille.

Most children adore singing; some children even sing before they speak. Blind or visually impaired children use their hearing all the time and mostly enjoy music, and making noise. The current technological developments for people who are blind are amazing but mainly occur in English. We have produced a multilingual children’s songbook (Dutch, English, French, and German) for blind children exposing them to other languages from an early age and allowing them to explore this world independently. The songs have been recorded and are available on youtube and Spotify. We have developed an ‘inclusive’ book by printing in black and in braille and adding visual and tactile illustrations.

Independence is also important for learning music. It would be best if blind children could learn reading braille music as soon as they have learned to read braille text. We want to make this happen by the addition of the music scores of 5 popular children’s songs in print and in braille.

The book contains 5 children’s songs that are interesting regarding music, learning body parts and movements. This makes it easier for blind children to connect the song texts to the tactile illustrations and the real world.
