A hand feeling braille

Scottish Book Trust will offer the 2023 Read, Write, Count books in braille or large print for children or families with visual impairment.

Borrowable braille copies of this year’s books will be made available through Clear Vision(this will open in a new window). The books are designed to be shared as a family and are suitable for children who are learning braille or may do so in the future.

To borrow copies, you will need to sign up for membership on the Clear Vision website(this will open in a new window) and specify you'd like to receive the Read, Write, Count books in your box.

Membership is free for families, and a £50 fee for organisations such as schools or libraries. Clear Vision will then send you a box of six books (school settings can borrow up to 20 books), including the Read, Write, Count titles which you can borrow for up to six months. Return postage to return the books is included.

Large print

Large print copies of the books are available through CustomEyes(this will open in a new window) and are custom printed to suit you, or your child's, need in terms of font size, spacing and paper colour. Two books are selected per child and will be free for you to order.
