The Perkins Panda Early Literacy Program is a braille instruction kit designed for use by children who are blind or have low vision. This kit includes materials that help teach fundamental early literacy skills to children with visual impairments and help parents to be more involved in their child’s development. Included in the kit are three packets, each with an interrelated storybook, activity guide, and cassette with songs and new stories to complement the storybooks. In addition, there is a guide to additional resources, a story box, and a Gund brand stuffed panda with a backpack that can hold a tape player (not included). The storybooks all have uncontracted (beginning stage or Grade 1) braille, large print, and high-contrast illustrations. The first book, Belly Button, is a tactile board book.
